Domain-Driven Morphogenesis of Cellular Membranes

  title={Domain-Driven Morphogenesis of Cellular Membranes},
  author={Anna V. Shnyrova and V. A. Frolov and Joshua Zimmerberg},
  journal={Current Biology},
Cellular membrane systems delimit and organize the intracellular space. Most of the morphological rearrangements in cells involve the coordinated remodeling of the lipid bilayer, the core of the membranes. This process is generally thought to be initiated and coordinated by specialized protein machineries. Nevertheless, it has become increasingly evident that the most essential part of the geometric information and energy required for membrane remodeling is supplied via the cooperative and… CONTINUE READING
