Ultrastructural Localization of Lipids in Myocardial Membranes

  • N. J. Severs

Abstract

All biological membranes are constructed according to a common plan. The central features of this plan are summarized in the ‘fluid mosaic’ model proposed by Singer and Nicolson (1), A bilayer of lipid molecules makes up the basic structure of the membrane; proteins are embedded in and attached onto this ‘backbone’ (Figure 1). The properties unique to each membrane system are determined by the exact types and amounts of its constituent lipids and proteins. Precise chemical identification and localization of these constituents is thus central to our understanding of membrane function.
