Endoplasmic Reticulum

ID #2166

I was wondering what the properties of a soluble protein were compared to membrane-bound proteins. I was also wondering if examples could be given for each category.

Soluble in this context means NOT membrane bound (free-floating, so to speak). Any protein secreted outside the cell, or any acid hydrolase working in a lysosome, would be a good example. Membrane-bound means that it is either a transmembrane protein (like MPR), or lipid-linked (like a GPI-anchored protein).
