English term or phrase:raftophilicity
Buongiorno, sto traducendo un articolo di biologia che parla della formazione dei rafts lipidici e mi sono imbattuta nel termine "raftophilicity", penso che intenda indicare la propensione delle proteine a formare raft. Esempi in contesto:
There are many palmitoylated pro-teins that are not raft-associated, including the generally used nonraft marker, the transferrin
receptor. Both TMD length and amino acid sequence will be involved in defining raftophilicity
What makes a trans-membrane protein raftophilic? Previous studies on this issue were based on detergent-resistance.
The indirect and controversial nature of these experiments limited their applicability in assigning raft affinity. With the advent of phase-separated PMs, the analysis of raftophilicity is becoming more straightforward.
In questo articolo sembra spiegare meglio cosa sia:
An emerging paradigm for the regulation of lipid raft formation suggests that clustering of molecules with high affinity for lipid rafts (raftophilicity)
