Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...s to recognize and communicate with other cells or get nutrients. Cells also communicate with one another via small, membrane-bound vesicles that contain proteins or other molecular cargo. When delivering their goods, vesicles from one cell fuse with the outermost membrane of another cell to form a serie...
