The primary function of the lipids in biological membranes is to form a bilayer that provides a permeability barrier between cytoplasm and environment. However most organisms contain lipids that do not form bilayers at physiological conditions. A balance between bilayer and non-bilayer lipids is essential to form a dynamic membrane that is also a permeability barrier.
