Latest Lipid raft Stories
Eukaryotic cells are compartmentalized by membranes, whose shape and dynamics are precisely regulated to maintain their correct functions.
A new way of looking at a cell's surface reveals the distribution of small molecules in the cell membrane, changing the understanding of its organization.
Why does inhaling anesthetics cause unconsciousness?
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago think so, and a biosensor they've created that measures membrane lipid levels may open up new pathways to disease treatment.
A new laser technique has demonstrated it can measure the interactions between proteins tangled in a cellâ€™s membrane and a variety of other biological molecules.
A research team led by scientists at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) at Virginia Tech has discovered a fundamental entry mechanism that allows dangerous fungal microbes to infect plants and cause disease.
New research reveals how proteins that are critical for the transparency of the eye lens are properly sorted and localized in membrane bilayers.
New data on signaling proteins, called G proteins, may prove important in fighting diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative disorders, and cancer.
By Anglin, Timothy C Conboy, John C ABSTRACT The dependence of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine (DPPC) flip-flop kinetics on the lateral membrane pressure in a phospholipid bilayer was investigated by sum- frequency vibrational spectroscopy.
By Churchward, Matthew A Rogasevskaia, Tatiana; Brandman, David M; Khosravani, Houman; Nava, Phillip; Atkinson, Jeffrey K; Coorssen, Jens R ABSTRACT The Ca^sup 2+^-triggered merger of two apposed membranes is the defining step of regulated exocytosis.
