Cytosolic calcium ions regulate lipid mobility in the plasma membrane of the human megakaryoblastic cell line MEG-01.


The fluidity of the plasma membrane is thought to play a role in the activation of blood platelets. We investigated the lateral diffusion of the lipophilic probe 1,1'-ditetradecyl-3,3,3',3'-tetramethyl-indocarbocyanine perchlorate (DiIC14) and derivatives in the plasma membrane of the megakaryoblast MEG-01 by fluorescence recovery after photobleaching. The… (More)
