Abstract

Changes in the cellular environment can lead to alterations in the fluidity of the membranes of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Changes in temperature and osmotic conditions are two of the best-studied stresses that can affect membrane fluidity. Los and Murata discuss the types of sensors that detect these changes in membrane fluidity and the types of signals that are generated.
