Proteins involved in lipid translocation in eukaryotic cells.

Since the first discovery of ATP-dependent translocation of lipids in the human erythrocyte membrane in 1984, there has been much evidence of the existence of various ATPases translocating lipids in eukaryotic cell membranes. They include P-type ATPases involved in inwards lipid transport from the exoplasmic leaflet to the cytosolic leaflet and ABC proteins… CONTINUE READING
