Cages – a New Plasma Membrane Structure

The Heit lab is excited to announce the discovery of membrane cages, a previously undescribed membrane structure. This discovery has been published in the journal Scientific Reports. Membrane cages act to transiently block the diffusion of membrane proteins, thus structuring proteins in cellular membranes over short periods of time. This discovery was made, with our collaborator Dr John de …
