The organization of the plasma membrane of cells in lipid domains affects the way the membrane interacts with the underlying protein skeleton, which in turn affects the lateral mobility of lipid and protein molecules in the membrane. Membrane fluidity properties can be monitored by various approaches, the most versatile of which is fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP). We extended previous FRAP experiments on isolated cochlear outer hair cells (OHCs) by analyzing the two… CONTINUE READING
