Cellular Membrane Bending by Protein-Protein Crowding

Post, December 18, 2012 • Cellular membranes are made up of lipid bilayers that can be highly curved, an essential feature critical for processes such as endocytosis, organelle synthesis, cell division, and intracellular transport. Current understanding suggests that specialized proteins are responsible for membrane curvature through two mechanisms (Figure 1). The first is membrane scaffolding...
