In recent years, the implication of sphingomyelin in lipid raft formation has intensified the long sustained interest in this membrane lipid. Accumulating evidences show that cholesterol preferentially interacts with sphingomyelin, conferring specific physicochemical properties to the bilayer membrane. The molecular packing created by cholesterol and… CONTINUE READING
