Organization and Role of Lipids in Membranes

  • Giorgio Lenaz

Abstract

Since the pioneering studies of Gortel and Grendel(1) and Danielli and Dayson,(2) it was postulated that lipids in biomembranes are organized in the form of bilayers; the same picture is still considered valid, and uncertainties in membrane structure have been related in past years to the structural relations existing between proteins and the lipid bilayer. (3–6) The importance of hydrophobic interactions between lipids and proteins was stressed by Green and Fleischer(7) and subsequently confirmed in reconstitution studies of the inner mitochondrial membrane by Lenaz et al. (8–11)
