The effect of cholesterol depletion of the human erythrocyte membrane on the lateral diffusion rate of a fluorescent lipid probe is reported. At low temperature (-5 to 5 degrees C), the diffusion of the probe is 50% slower in the cholesterol-depleted membrane than in non-depleted membrane. At high temperatures (30 to 40 degrees C), probe mobility is not affected by cholesterol depletion. These results suggest that cholesterol suppresses aspects of phospholipid phase changes in animal cells in a… CONTINUE READING
