Abstract

Biological membranes are composed of a complex mixture of lipids and proteins, and the membrane lipids support several key biophysical functions, in addition to their obvious structural role. Recent results from X-ray crystallography are shedding new light on the precise molecular details of the protein–lipid interface.
