Conductance and ion selectivity of a mesoscopic protein nanopore probed with cysteine scanning mutagenesis.

Nanometer-scale proteinaceous pores are the idea of ion and macromolecular transport in cells and organelles. Recent research recommend that ion channels and artificial nanopores might show helpful in biotechnological purposes. To higher perceive the structure-function relationship of nanopores, we’re finding out the ion-conducting properties of channels fashioned by wild-type and genetically engineered variations of Staphylococcus aureus alpha-hemolysin … Read more
