Membrane protein 'factory' may lead to new drug treatments

Abstract:
Brian Wang: Mastering proteins is a pathway to molecular nanotechnology. This is an advance towards understanding and mastering non-water soluable proteins.

"Argonne biologists developed a membrane protein production "factory" using photosynthetic Rhodobacter, which can be engineered to express and incorporate the proteins into the cell's cytoplasmic membrane, shown in white. Membrane proteins are difficult to study in traditional ways. Since they make up 60 percent of all drug targets, researchers are working to overcome the challenges."
