Lipids and membranes

Membranes define the boundaries of cells and their major organelles, enabling cellular compartmentalization that is essential for cell function. Membranes are also signalling platforms that mediate communication with the extracellular environment and between organelles. This article series brings together Reviews that focus on key advances in understanding membrane biology as well as the regulation and functions of their lipid components, including their roles as bioactive molecules and their interplay with metabolism.
