Protein driven lipid domain nucleation in biological membranes

18 Sep 2019Moritz HofererSilvia BonfantiAlessandro TaloniCaterina A. M. La PortaStefano Zapperi

Lipid rafts are heterogeneous dynamic lipid domains of the cell membranes that are involved in several biological processes, like protein/lipids specific transport and signaling. Our understanding of lipid raft formation is still limited, due to the transient and elusive nature of these domains {\it in vivo}, in contrast to the stable phase-separated domains observed in artificial membranes...
