Structure and function are co-relatable in living organisms. Can you justify this by taking the plasma membrane as an example?

Answers (1)

Ans. The statement is true.
A cell should have a plasma membrane because without it, there will be no container to hold the contents of the cell, and cells will not have any independent existence.The plasma membrane should not be fully permeable or impermeable; rather, it should be selectively permeable to allow the exchange of important materials between the cell and its environment. The lipid bilayer that makes the plasma membrane contains protein molecules which act as a channel for transportation of substances in the cell or out of the cell. The fluid layer of lipid allows sure that only those molecules are passed through the plasma membrane that can travel easily through osmosis.
