The sarcolemma of smooth muscle cells is composed of alternating stiff actin-binding, and flexible caveolar domains. In addition to these stable macrodomains, the plasma membrane contains dynamic glycosphingolipid- and cholesterol-enriched microdomains, which act as sorting posts for specific proteins and are involved in membrane trafficking and signal transduction. We demonstrate that these lipid rafts are neither periodically organized nor exclusively confined to the actin attachment sites or… CONTINUE READING
