Orthogonal arrays of particles in non-pigmented cells of rat ciliary epithelium: Relation to distribution of filipin- and digitonin-induced alterations of the basolateral membrane


It has been suggested that orthogonal arrays of particles may increase the rigidity of plasma membrane, as does cholesterol. Therefore, using freeze-fractured non- pigmented ciliary epithelium, the distribution of such arrays was compared to the distribution of membrane deformations induced by the sterol-probes filipin and digitonin in different domains of… (More)
