Role of Lipid Organization and Dynamics for Membrane Functionality

  • Ole G. Mouritsen

For almost 25 years the Singer-Nicolson fluid-mosaic model of biological membranes (Singer and Nicolson, 1972) has been the central paradigm of membrane science. This model, and the powerful and rather simple conceptual framework it provided to membrane scientists, have had a tremendous impact on advances in the broad field of biological membranes over the past more than two decades.
