Abstract

Single-molecule observations reveal that lipid- and protein-based interactions jointly contribute to the interactions among glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored proteins in membranes. Understanding these interactions will help to refine long-evolving (and still debated) models of 'raft' domains in biological membranes.
