Research Topics

Formation mechanism of "lipid raft" in cell membranes
Cell membranes are two-dimensional fluids that are composed of lipids and proteins and form fundamental structures of living cells. Their distributions are not homogeneous in cell membranes, but it is considered that nano-sized structure (called as lipid raft) that is formed by specific lipids and proteins exists. The lipid raft has biologically important functions to exchange biochemical signals or substances between inside and outside of cell membranes. We have investigated the formation mechanism of this functional structure through experiments, theoretical analysis, and numerical simulations.
