Abstract:The mechanism of membrane domain formation was investigated through analysis of domains induced both by calcium and myelin basic protein in vesicles containing components normally enriched in myelin. In the presence of calcium or myelin basic protein, domains enriched in phosphatidic acid, phosphatidylserine, galactocerebroside, and sulfatide were observed to form. In these domains phosphatidic acid or phosphatidylserine co-localized with galactocerebroside and sulfatide. Sphingomyelin was unable to partition into a domain unless sulfatide was also present.
