Multimolecular assemblies on the plasma membrane exhibit dynamic nature and are often generated during the activation of eukaryotic cells. The role of lipids and their physical properties in helping to control the existence of these structures is discussed. Technological improvements for live cell imaging of membrane components are also reviewed.
