Re: Lipid Bilayers vs Micelles

I don't know what a micelle is (we haven't covered that in class) but we did go over properties of phospholipids. A phospholipid with two hydrophobic tails will prevent the lipid in forming a circular fashion. These water-fearing tails will effectively orient the adjacent phospholipids into a bilaye...

Imagine that you are a member of a committee assigned to evaluate a report on neurofibromatosis, a disorder inherited through a dominant allele. The report concludes that, because 75% of the offspring of parents who are heterozygous for neurofibromatosis will have the disorder, eventually 75% of th...
