Emergence(s) project MEMREMA: Membrane remodeling in Archaea
Archaea have unique membranes, radically different from those of bacteria and eukaryotes. Whereas in bacteria and eukaryotes, lipids consist of fatty acids linked to glycerol moieties via an ester bond, in archaeal lipids, isoprenoid […]
ANR-ENVIRA: Membrane remodeling by enveloped viruses of Archaea
Membrane remodeling is a fundamental and necessary process underlying proper functioning of cellular organisms in all three domains of life. Much of our knowledge on the mechanisms of membrane fusion and scission, two of […]
