Term Detail
GO term:membrane raft
Synonym: GEM domain
Synonym: glycolipid-enriched membrane domain
Synonym: lipid raft
GO id:GO:0045121
Definition:Any of the small (10-200 nm), heterogeneous, highly dynamic, sterol- and sphingolipid-enriched membrane domains that compartmentalize cellular processes. Small rafts can sometimes be stabilized to form larger platforms through protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions.
Number of paths to term: 3
