Abstract

The fluid mosaic model for membranes supports the concept that both lipids and proteins are free to laterally diffuse in the bilayer, implying a random distribution of lipids and proteins within the layer. In fact, in the last decade, evidences have accumulated for the existence of heterogeneities in the distribution of the molecules as well as in their dynamical behaviour.
