Lipid bilayers formed between two aqueous phases have this important property: they form two-dimensional sheets, the edges ofwhich close upon each other and undergo self-sealing to formliposomes.
a. What are the forces that drive bilayerformation? What are the consequences of this property for thestructure of biological membranes?
b. Explain why phosphoglycerides are capable of spontaneouslyassembling into the bilayer structure found in biological membranesbut triacylglycerols are not.
