It is now clear that the plasma membrane is not homogeneous but contains specific subcompartments characterized by their unique lipid and protein composition. Based on their enrichment in various signaling molecules, these microcompartments are now recognized to be sites of localized signal transduction for several extracellular stimuli. At least two different types of microdomains can be identified, largely based on the presence or absence of the caveolin proteins. The generic name of caveolae… CONTINUE READING
