Membrane Fusion, Formation and Flow

  • Howard R. Petty


A membrane’s composition undergoes constant change due to the insertion and removal of its components. For example, bacteria alter their membranes’ fatty acyl composition in response to temperature shifts. Another example of membrane restructuring is the turnover of membrane proteins as they become worn out. Changes in membrane composition are achieved by the direct insertion of a new component into a membrane or a fusion event between two membranes. This chapter will begin by considering simple fusion events in vitro. We will then discuss direct membrane insertion and a few complex fusion events observed in vivo.
