Mechanisms of Membrane Transport
We are pleased to present a collection of articles on mechanisms of membrane transport, which have been curated from recent issues of JGP.
The range of mechanisms that membrane proteins use to transport solutes across lipid bilayers is vast. At the simplest level, transport proteins can be divided into channels and transporters, but the range of structures and mechanisms that exist within these two classes is manifold and their stories are only just beginning to be told.
The articles in this collection highlight some of the recent advances in this field and demonstrate the range of tools and techniques — both experimental and computational — that are being deployed to integrate structure and dynamics with function.
We hope you enjoy these articles, which are all freely available for a limited period.
