Recent Developments in the Physics of Fluctuating Membranes

Abstract

Figure 1 shows a schematic view of an ensemble of membranes in a living cell. Each of these structures consists of a large quantity of various constituents: proteins, glycolipids, lipids and others. Each membrane has a specific composition, and plays a specific role in the functioning of the cell. For instance, the Golgi apparatus, shown in Figure 1, is mainly used by the cell to sort out proteins produced by ribosomes in the endoplasmic reticulum (another membrane structure) and send them towards different parts of the cell.
