Hi Edwin, The cell membrane is composed of lipids, lipidated proteins and proteins that interact in order to compose a permeable, highly adaptable, barrier against the extracellular milieu. This membrane changes and adapts according to various stimuli in order to maintain homeostasis. This is also true when a cell is transplanted. However, there is no indication that the cell membrane of a transplanted cell changes its function or its composition following its transplantation in a similar environment. Thanks for your question, Michel
