Interesting post and article Elio, this type of work also seems to hint at the fact that lipid rafts or a bacterial homolog may be present in bacterial lipid membranes. Given that certain bacteria are known to produce unique lipids such as PUFA's it wouldn't surprise me to see that production of unique lipids(PUFAs for example) is site directed and that certain proteins are found localized to these raft like regions just as in eukaryotic cells.
