Sphingomyelin, one of the main lipid components of biological membranes, is actively involved in various cellular processes such as protein trafficking and signal transduction. In particular, specific lateral domains enriched in sphingomyelin and cholesterol have been proposed to play an important functional role in biomembranes, although their precise characteristics have remained unclear. A thorough understanding of the functional role of membranes requires detailed knowledge of their… CONTINUE READING
