Portland State University researchers used advanced electron microscopy to create a 3-D reconstruction of a membrane protein at an unprecedented level of resolution, setting the stage for the development of drugs that could target the protein more effectively to treat a variety of diseases.
The Reichow Lab, led by chemistry professor Steve Reichow and made up of undergraduate and graduate students, uses cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and computer modeling to visualize how individual protein…
