Why Are Folded Membranes an Advantage to a Cell?

Answer

Folded membranes are an advantage to a cell because they upsurge surface area for movement into and out of the cell. A membrane is a thin, film-like structure that separates two fluids and acts as a selective impediment. It consists of a lipid bilayer with embedded proteins that may constitute close to 50% of membrane content.
