The work described in this thesis has provided a novel insight into the process of sphingolipid transport and sorting in polarized cells. We have used HepG2 cells as a model system to study polarized traffic in hepatic cells. Under specific culture conditions, HepG2 cells acquire a polarized phenotype, displaying a sinusoidal, basolateral plasma membrane and a bilecanalicular, apical plasma membrane domain ...
