    Proton Conduction Pathways in Proton Channel Proteins
    NIH/NIGMS K99GM138753Sep 1, 2020 - Aug 31, 2022
    Role Description: The flow of protons across membranes is critical for bioenergetics, signaling and other biological processes. The transport of protons across cellular membranes could be potentially toxic to cells had proton channel proteins not fine-tuned their selectivity and rate of transmission (conductivity). This proposal aims to understand the mechanisms by which these proton channels achieve and fine-tune proton selectivity and conductivity through the detailed study of the influenza A virus matrix protein 2 and synthetic designed proton channels.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
