HOW BACTERIAL PROTEINS TRANSPORT ENERGY

Nature: Bacteria can transfer energy from one membrane to another. How the proteins responsible for the process are arranged has been a mystery for a long time. Enrica Bordignon and coworkers publish new insights in Nature. -Nature

 Researchers have clarified in detail how certain bacteria can transfer energy between their inner and outer cell membranes with the aid of a protein complex. The complicated Ton protein system is responsible for the energy transfer, but its exact composition has been unknown up to now. The team, which also includes RUB chemist Prof Dr Enrica Bordignon, has published the results in the journal “Nature”.
