Description
Membrane interfaces formed at junctions between cells are often associated with characteristic patterns of membrane protein organization, such as in epithelial tissues and between cells of the immune system. This talk will describe how cell surface molecular height can directly contribute to the spatial arrangement of membrane proteins and downstream signaling. I’ll discuss several biological problems where cell surface molecular height appears relevant, introduce an optical method for characterizing molecular height, and present in vitro and live cell experiments that point to height as a central regulator of function.
