Mapping the Lipid Distribution in the Membranes of BHK Cells (Mini-Review)

Mol Membr Biol. Apr-Jun 1996;13(2):81-4. doi: 10.3109/09687689609160580.

Abstract

An analysis of lipid distribution in the membranes of BHK cells has been carried out based on published information concerning the lipid composition of cells and subcellular fractions. This work may be useful in the quantitative analysis of cell fractionation studies and for the interpretation of the results of experiments involving the breakdown of specific pools of lipid by lipases.
