Plasma Membrane and Cell Environment

Part of the CRM Series in Mathematical Physics book series (CRM)

The plasmalemma is the barrier between the extracellular (ECF) and the intracellular fluids (ICF). The plasmalemma thus connects the cell to its environment: (1) neighborhing cells, especially in epithelia, and (2) the extracellular matrix (Sect. 2.4), as well as in the case of endothelium, (3) the flowing blood (Chap. 9).
