2010) Phosphatidylglucoside forms specific lipid domains
on the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane.
Menthol preferentially distributes into the intercellular spaces of stratum corneum and possibly causes the reversible disruption of lipid domains
, thus enhancing the permeation of drugs (10).
Among the biochemical, biophysical, and computational methods are analyzing the raft affinity of membrane proteins by detergent-insolubility, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, and small-angle neutron scattering to detect rafts and lipid domains
INGBER: Studies on lipid domains
and stretch-activated ion channels are looking for the type of information that you have.
Subsequent chapters progress from methods for the study of simple to more complex structures and interactions, covering behaviors of lipids in water systems and phases, membrane lipid movements and diffusion, properties of lipids in mono and bilayers, complex lipid domains
, and membrane-lipid interaction with proteins and drugs.
