The cell membrane

The cell membrane is made up of two-layer of phospholipids as its basic framework. It protects the important elements inside the cell from the outside environment and controls what goes in and out of the cell.

When the cell membrane is damaged, the function of the cell is weakened. Severe cell membrane damage may lead to cell death.
