 what will happen if the plasma membrane ruptures or break down

Asked by Debaditya(GYAN BHARATI SCHOOL) , on 14/4/14

The function of the plasma membrane is the maintaining the homeostasis inside the cell. It separates the internal specific environment of the cell from the outer environment which is essential for its integrity and function. Rupture of the plasma membrane result in the loss of its integrity and so the loss of function. The cell will leak all its organelles outside.

 why plasma membrane is called selectively permeable membrane

Posted by Akankshaon 1/7/12


 Plasma Membrane is the outer covering of the cell that seperates its content from the surrounding medium. It is a selectively permeable membrane . If it rupture or breaks down the cytoplasm will come in direct contact with the surrounding medium and the act of selection will stop.
