Rafts and the battleships of defense: the multifaceted microdomains for positive and negative signals in immune cells.

Recognition of the heterogeneity of the cell membrane was one of the most important scientific achievements in the last decades. Since coining the term "lipid rafts", continuous development of advanced microscopic and spectroscopic techniques has vastly expanded our view on these cell membrane microdomains that appear to have almost as many faces as… CONTINUE READING
