Quick Reference

An important property of cell membranes which behave as viscous two-dimensional fluids within their physiological temperature range. Alteration in the lipid composition may alter fluidity and the fluidity is thought to be important for facilitating conformational changes in integral membrane proteins. If fluidity alters then ion channels may malfunction and this has been speculated to be important in anaesthesia.
