The statements that are consistent with the cell membrane are to be identified. Concept introduction: Glycolipids are the types of lipids in which an alcohol group is bound to a carbohydrate chain by a glycosidic linkage. Most commonly, glycolipids originate from ceramides in which the glycosidic linkage occurs between a sugar residue and the primary alcohol group of ceramide. A glycoprotein consists of a carbohydrate group that is covalently attached to the polypeptide chain. Lipid bilayer is amphipathic in nature and contains both the hydrophobic and the hydrophilic parts. The hydrophobic part consists of water repellent group and the hydrophilic part consists of water loving group.
