basolateral plasma membrane

basolateral plasma membrane

The part of an epithelial cell’s plasma membrane which is adjacent to the basal lamina or to the adjoining cells of the sheet. The basolateral plasma membrane differs both in protein and phospholipid composition from the apical plasma membrane from which it is isolated by tight junctions—zonula occludens.
