A gating mechanism of pentameric ligand-gated ion channels

Pentameric ligand-gated ion channels (pLGICs) control membrane conductance in living systems from bacteria to humans. Molecular dynamics simulations based on the structures of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic channels show that ion gating is mediated by a major quaternary (twisting) transition of the ...

Crystal within a crystal

Sylvie Ferlay, Mir Wais Hosseini and colleagues at the University of Strasbourg used a molecular tectonics strategy to prepare the crystals. In molecular tectonics, building blocks, called tectons, are designed to recognise each other so that they self-assemble into molecular networks when placed ...
