Many proteins associated with the plasma membrane are known to partition into submicroscopic sphingolipid- and cholesterol-rich domains called lipid rafts, but the determinants dictating this segregation of proteins in the membrane are poorly understood. We suppressed the tendency of Aequoreafluorescent proteins to dimerize and targeted these variants to the plasma membrane using several different types of lipid anchors.

The Different Hues of Lipid Rafts
TLDR
New findings that reveal how lipid moieties attached to proteins instruct the proteins to move into different types of lipid rafts are explained.
The state of lipid rafts: from model membranes to cells.

TLDR
Despite extensive work, the basis for raft formation in cell membranes and the size of rafts and their stability are all uncertain and recent work converges on very small rafts <10 nm in diameter that may enlarge and stabilize when their constituents are cross-linked.
Nanodomains in biological membranes.
TLDR
The concept of the lipid raft and alternative models are described and how new imaging technologies have advanced these concepts are described to investigate the organization of cell membranes with unprecedented spatial resolution.
Cellular Localization of Small GTPases
TLDR
Results suggest that the nature of lipid modifications on proteins is necessary to determine their submicroscopic localization, membrane interaction dynamics, and cell signaling.
Isolation and analysis of lipid rafts in cell-cell interactions.
Lipid rafts are dynamic structures made up of proteins and lipids that float freely within the liquid-disordered bilayer of cellular membranes and have the ability to cluster to form larger,
Live-cell monitoring of protein localization to membrane rafts using protein-fragment complementation
TLDR
A novel approach based on Gaussia princeps luciferase protein-fragment complementation assay to quantitively investigate protein partitioning to cholesterol and sphingomyelin-rich domains, sometimes called ‘lipid rafts’, in intact living cells with a high-spatial resolution is developed.
Dynamic Organization of Myristoylated Src in the Live Cell Plasma Membrane.
TLDR
A combination of time-resolved fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy and super-resolution microscopy is used to quantify the dynamic organization of c-Src in live cell membranes and build a quantitative description of the mobility and clustering behavior of the c- Src nonreceptor tyrosine kinase in the live cell plasma membrane.

GPI-anchored proteins are organized in submicron domains at the cell surface
TLDR
The results indicate that lipid-linked proteins are organized in cholesterol-dependent submicron-sized domains, which are likely to be less than 70 nm in diameter and are disrupted by removal of cellular cholesterol.
Role of Lipid Modifications in Targeting Proteins to Detergent-resistant Membrane Rafts
TLDR
It is shown that at least half of the proteins in Madin-Darby canine kidney cell DRMs (other than cytoskeletal contaminants) could be labeled with [3H]palmitate, and partitioning of covalently linked saturated acyl chains into liquid-ordered phase domains is likely to be an important mechanism for targeting proteins to DRMs.
Separation of caveolae from associated microdomains of GPI-anchored proteins
In situ coating of the surface of endothelial cells in rat lung with cationic colloidal silica particles was used to separate caveolae from detergent-insoluble membranes rich in glycosyl
Distribution of a Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored Protein at the Apical Surface of MDCK Cells Examined at a Resolution of <100 Å Using Imaging Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer
TLDR
The data imply that most 5′ NT molecules are randomly distributed across the apical surface of MDCK cells, which constrain current models for lipid rafts and the membrane organization of GPI-anchored proteins.
Protein lipidation in cell signaling.
The ability of cells to communicate with and respond to their external environment is critical for their continued existence. A universal feature of this communication is that the external signal
Cholesterol Depletion Delocalizes Phosphatidylinositol Bisphosphate and Inhibits Hormone-stimulated Phosphatidylinositol Turnover*
TLDR
It is reported here that depletion of cellular cholesterol leads to the inhibition of epidermal growth factor- and bradykinin- Stimulated PtdIns turnover in A431 cells, consistent with the hypothesis that localization of signaling proteins and lipids to cholesterol-enriched domains is required for the proper function of hormone-stimulated PTDIns turnover.
Lipid rafts and signal transduction
TLDR
It is now becoming clear that lipid micro-environments on the cell surface — known as lipid rafts — also take part in this process of signalling transduction, where protein–protein interactions result in the activation of signalling cascades.
