    Effect of Cholesterol on Cell Membrane

    Can someone double check if I'm thinking of this correctly? If the temperature increases, we want to decrease fluidity (higher temperature might cause the cell to “denature” and explode because of the more kinetic energy possible) to keep the cell stable. If the temperature drops too low (the...

    Lets say we have a bioreactor (closed system) with cells floating in it. If we are to introduce a stir rod, which would increase the velocity of the cells within the system, would the pressure of the system increase as well? I believe the pressure will increase: the particles are moving faster...
