Abstract

Lipid rafts are defined as detergent-resistant membrane microdomains of specific lipid and protein composition. They are involved in many aspects of cell biology, including T-cell activation and immunoreceptor signaling. This review discusses current controversies around lipid rafts and summarizes recent developments in the area.
