    1. An integrin is an integral membrane protein in the plasma membrane of cells. It plays a role in the attachment of a cell to the extracellular matrix (ECM) and to other cells, and in signal transduction from the ECM to the cell. How is the structure of integrins reflective of this function?

    5. In a cell with a resting membrane potential what is the distribution of K+, Na+, and Ca2+ ions (more extracellulary or intracellurally). Explain.
