kemz asks:

hi! there has been lots of answers to how temperature effects the beetroot membrane but not alcohol. the information i have is that alcohol is soluable in a phospholipid. but how does it make the membrane more permeable, is it affecting the fluidity of the membrane or the proteins.

etutor answers:
Phospholipids are soluble in alcohol and so alcohol damages the lipid bilayer part of the membrane.
