The Structure of Cellular Membranes

  • Fritiof S. Sjöstrand
Conference paper


From the beginning I want to point out that I do not belong to the union so overwhelmingly represented here. I do not believe that we are justified in considering that there is only one particular type of structural organization of cellular membranes or that we know with any certainty what the actual structure is. This caution becomes rather justifiable when considering the observations of Dr. Luzzati and collaborators in pure systems of amphifiles in water, according to which several different configurations of the soap molecules occur, any particular configuration depending on concentration of the amphifile and on the temperature.
