Dynamics of membrane proteins in biological cells.
Membrane proteins mediate actions that are essential for biological cells to thrive. Receptors facilitate communication between the cell and its surroundings, membrane-embedded enzymes catalyse chemical reactions, and transporters that are embedded in membranes carry ions and bigger solutes across membranes. Understanding how the proteins link to their fluid, hydrated lipid membrane environment is necessary to comprehend these methods of action. Here, we present recent research on the structure, function, and dynamics of membrane proteins using computational and experimental methods. We also demonstrate how these studies address important issues in understanding the complex environmental influences on these properties.Author(s): Robinson Zhou*
