Membrane lipid composition and receptor function

Balla Tamas

Information transfer through cellular membranes relies upon recognition of the physical and chemical information surrounding the cell by specific proteins, called receptors located in the plasma membrane (PM). These receptors are coupled to various signal relaying systems in the inter leaflet of the PM to initiate the cascade of cellular events that is characteristic of the cell and the receptor. Several receptor types alter the activity of enzymes that liberate signalling mol...
