The lipid modifications of ras that sense membrane environments and induce local enrichment

Academic Article


  • Matching the membrane: The lipid modification of human N-Ras proteins can adapt remarkably to the host membrane by varying its length between 8.7 and 15.5 as can be seen in the 2H NMR spectra of deuterated derivatives (see picture). In raft-forming biological membranes, Ras is found in the liquid disordered phase as well as in the phase boundary between liquid-crystalline and raft domains. © 2009 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH &. Co.
