Molecular Cell Biology of Lipid Domains
Organizer(s): Richard G.W. Anderson, Michael S. Brown and Joseph L. Goldstein
Date: March 26 - 31, 2004
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Supported by Keystone Symposia
Summary of Meeting:
Lipid domains are a class of membrane domains that compartmentalize signaling modules, regulate the transport of ions, molecules and macromolecular complexes to specific cellular sites, and spatially organize signal transduction in polarized cells. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together a diverse set of investigators with the goal of exploring the molecular basis of lipid domain function. The topics to be discussed include: intracellular traffic of lipid domains; role of lipid domains in bacterial and viral pathogenesis; signal transduction from lipid domains; mechanisms of protein/lipid sorting by lipid domains; lipid traffic through lipid domains: structural basis of protein function in lipid domains; biogenesis of lipid domains; biophysics of lipid lateral organization.
Discounted Abstract Deadline: November 24 2003
Discounted Registration Deadline: January 27 2004
