Online Cover This week features a Research Resource that describes PLIF, a fluorescence-based method for quantifying protein-phosphoinositide lipid interactions. This technique is useful not just for basic research but for developing drugs that target such protein-lipid interactions. The image shows fluorescent-labeled liposomes from which a phosphoinositide interacts with a peptide. [Image: Julien Viaud, INSERM and Université Toulouse, France]
