The plasma membrane of Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains large microdomains enriched in ergosterol, which house at least nine integral proteins, including proton symporters. The domains adopt a characteristic structure of furrow-like invaginations typically seen in freeze-fracture pictures of fungal cells. Being stable for the time comparable with the cell cycle duration, they might be considered as fixed islands (rafts) in an otherwise fluid yeast plasma membrane. Rapidly moving endocytic… CONTINUE READING
