Abstract

Membrane fission occurs in eukaryotic cells whenever a vesicle is produced or a larger subcellular compartment is divided into smaller discrete units. Recent evidence suggests this fission event is promoted by enzymes that generate phosphatidic acid and thereby cause a distortion of the lipid bilayer.
