    Answer:

    Membrane proteins that penetrate deeply into the lipid bilayer and can possibly extend from one surface to the other are called _Integral_ proteins whereas other proteins that are attached to either the inner or the outer surface of the lipid bilayer are called __Peripheral___ proteins.

    Explanation:

    The exterior structure of plasma proteins is made up of hydrophilic components to face water while interior is made up of hydrophobic components. There are different type of proteins also found in membrane that interact with biological molecules.

    • The integral proteins are transmembrane proteins and embedded in the whole plasma membrane bilayer because they are capable of transverse through the hydrophobic components of plasma membrane. They are permanently attached to membrane
    • The peripheral proteins were found floating on either side of plasma membrane because they usually don’t have hydrophobic components. These are loosely attached to membrane.
