Caveolae: anchored, multifunctional platforms in the lipid ocean.

Abstract

The function of caveolae is hotly debated. It now seems clear that caveolae are stable membrane domains that are kept in place by the actin cytoskeleton. However, this stability can be perturbed, leading to caveolar internalization. Caveolae are important in the regulation of various signaling processes, such as nitric oxide activity, and in cholesterol… (More)
