    mesheuropmc: lipids (amino acids, peptides, and proteins)

International audience; Domains are present in every natural membrane. They are characterized by a distinctive protein and/or lipid composition. Their size is highly variable from the nano- to the micrometer scale. The domains confer specific properties to the membrane ... View more
