Patches, posts and fences: proteins and plasma membrane domains

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Recent findings have indicated the presence of micrometre-scale protein-based domains in the membranes of several cell types. What are the implications of this organization for membrane function? Here, Michael Edidin describes the formation of protein-based domains, and discusses their possible effects on protein interactions within the bilayer.
