The elucidation of the molecular architecture of cell membranes is a central goal for cell biology, as structure lies at the heart of function. The erythrocyte plasma membrane has long provided a favored testing ground for this inquiry. Human red blood cells are readily available, relatively homogeneous, and relevant to medicine. Their plasma membranes can be easily isolated intact and essentially free of contamination from other cells, organelles, and cytoplasmic contents. This membrane is… CONTINUE READING
