Conference paper


One approach, which has been of significant value in studies of the structure and function of biological membranes is the isolation of some of these individual membrane systems by sub-cellular fractionation as a prelude to their further characterization. Although a considerable amount of information is now available concerning the structure and properties of nuclei, mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum, much less is known of the properties of isolated plasma membrane, due mainly to difficulties in the preparation of this membrane system.
