Influence of lipids on transmembrane transport proteins

Influence of lipids on transmembrane transport proteins

We are reviewing the evidence for direct effects of lipids on the transport properties of ion channels and active transporters. For ion channels it has been convincingly shown that specific lipid-protein interactions can directly affect their function. For transporters, the evidence is more ambiguous. In all areas, however, the use of computer simulations extends the way in which we understand protein-membrane interactions.
