If you notice the structures shown in the plasma membrane diagram above, The plasma membrane is composed of a phospholipid bilayer, which are two layers of phospholipids back-to-back. Phospholipids are lipids with a phosphate group attached to them. The phospholipids have one head and two tails. For more detailed view, check out the diagrams below.

Here, we’ll take a closer look at the different components of the plasma membrane. The principal components of the plasma membrane are lipids (phospholipids and cholesterol), proteins, and carbohydrate groups that are attached to some of the lipids and proteins. Proteins in the cell membrane play a role in many other functions, such as cell signaling, cell recognition, and enzyme activity.

Carbohydrates are also found in the plasma membrane as part of glycoproteins, which are formed when a carbohydrate attaches to a protein. With these diagrams, hopefully you will get better knowledge and information about the parts and structures of plasma membrane!
