Term Information [More information on membrane raft]

Accession
GO:0045121
Name
membrane raft
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
lipid raft, GEM domain, glycolipid-enriched membrane domain
Definition
Any of the small (10-200 nm), heterogeneous, highly dynamic, sterol- and sphingolipid-enriched membrane domains that compartmentalize cellular processes. Small rafts can sometimes be stabilized to form larger platforms through protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions. Source: PMID:16645198, PMID:20044567
