Caption

Phospholipid bilayer. Computer artwork of the phospholipid bilayer that forms the membrane around all living cells. The cell membrane is made of phospholipid molecules. The molecules line up in two sheets, with the hydrophilic tails projecting inward and their polar head groups projecting outwards. The hydrophilic surface on both sides of the membrane, is the point of contact for molecules leaving or entering the cell. The lipid content of the membrane allows the cell membrane to automatically repair itself when it is torn.
