We propose a realistic mechanism accounting for the existence of sub-micrometric protein domains in cell membranes. At the biological level, such membrane domains have been demonstrated to be specialized, in that sense that they congregate one or a few protein species amongst the hundreds of different species that a cell membrane may contain, in order to… (More)
