The Interaction of Intrinsic Proteins and Lipids in Biomembranes
The concept that biomembranes are built on a lipid bilayer matrix is now commonly accepted. Suggestions have been made that non-lamellar regions may also occur within the structure of natural biomembranesl, although this view is presently somewhat controversial2,3. The proteins associated with biomembranes are located either within the lipid matrix (intrinsic proteins) or attached to the hydrophilic faces of the bilayer (extrinsic proteins). In some instances, intrinsic proteins may be held in position by a cytoskeleton.
