DYNAMIC MEMBRANE REMODELING
One of the cell's most important adaptions.
CELLS ARE DEFINED BY THEIR MEMBRANES
Most of what we see when we look at pictures of cells is membranes! Membranes are important because they allow cells to interact with their environment and separate parts of the cell from each other. Without these separate compartments, cells could not function as efficiently, and eukaryotic cells could not function at all. Just a small amount of leakage from some organelle membranes is enough to cause cell death.
