    ..These results strongly suggest that the association between Talpha and caveolin-1 occurs in cholesterol-rich, detergent-resistant membranes and is likely to be dependent upon the activation state of Talpha. ..

    ..Taken together, our results reveal a novel role for intracellular caveolin-1 in modulating phagolysosomal function. Moreover, they show, for the first time, that organellar caveolin-1 significantly affects tissue functionality in vivo. ..
