Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The plasma membrane encloses the cell contents and acts as a barrier between the cell and its environment. The plasma membrane allows a controlled exchange of ions and solutes with the rest of the organism and its surroundings, and plays an active role in many processes, such as plant development, pathogen resistance and frost-hardiness.
