Can membrane nanotubes facilitate communication between immune cells?
2004 (English)In: Biochemical Society Transactions, ISSN 0300-5127, E-ISSN 1470-8752, Vol. 32, 676-678 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Recent observations have revealed that intercellular connections can be formed through membrane nanotubes. These delicate structures could facilitate transport of organelles and membrane proteins between cells. The sharing of cell surface and cytoplasmic components between cells could be commonplace in biology, but an important physiological role for membrane nanotubes between immune cells is difficult to test with current technology.
