Yep!

I'm trying to make them easier so that people are more likely to answer. You seem good at this, but you don't post on the forums that often........

Ask a question then.

What is the difference between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids?

...

It seems that cell bio is unpopular?

Saturated lipids are simple hydrocarbon chains, with CH2 groups the entire length of the chain (occasionally a CH3 group). Unsaturated have a double bond "kink" in them, making them have less hydrogen. In membranes, the frequency of these determine the phase transition temperature, with more unsaturated lipids creating a more fluid, less stable, lower phase transition temperature.
