cytosolic face

cytosolic face
the surface of a biomembrane directed toward the cytoplasm; in the plasma membrane, it faces the interior of the cell; in organelles it is the exterior face, away from the lumen. For structures having a double membrane, it is the surface directed away from the space between the membranes.
