- ‘Cholesterol is one of the major lipid components of the plasma membrane of mammalian cells.’
- ‘The major destinations for proteins exiting the Golgi apparatus are the plasma membrane and the vacuolar system.’
- ‘The electrode tip pushes through the cell wall tending to jump quickly across the plasma membrane into either the cytoplasm or the vacuole.’
- ‘Among all the fluxes in the whole plant, the passage of through the plasma membrane of root cells has been intensively studied.’
