Phospholipid Modeling Set

These Molymod phospholipid models enable your students to explore the amphipathic structure of phospholipids, the most abundant lipids in membranes. The set contains all of the atoms and bonds needed to construct five phospholipids: phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylethanolamine and sphingomyelin, and compare and contrast their chemical make-up, particularly their hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails. The models can be used separately or with the Phospholipid & Membrane Transport Kit©.
