PATIAL asymmetry is fundamental to the structure and function ofmost eukaryotic cells. A basic aspect of this polarity is that the cell's plasma membrane is divided into discrete domains. Examples include the membranes of axons and dendrites in neurons, the growing bud and mating projection in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and lamellipodia in fibroblasts. However, the best-studied type of polarity is found in epithelia, which is the most common type of tissue in animals (52, 56) . In… CONTINUE READING
