There is considerable interest in lateral domain structure in biological membranes not least because a variety of physiological processes are believed to require assembly and mutual organization of particular membrane components for their execution. Domain structure is known to be created by differences in physicochemical properties between membrane lipids such as phase transition temperature, intermolecular hydrogen bonding and ionic functional groups. Domains are also created by specific… CONTINUE READING
