Schematic diagram: glycoconjugate acts as a broom with sweeping motion arising from matrix. The striped arrows depict the motions of oligosaccharides arising from the bobbing of the lipid bilayer. The motions of the membrane is also dependent on the matrix for stability or lack of it. The motions of the oligosaccharide may allow and prevent the binding of CD4 and antibodies respectively.
