Abstract: Membrane proteins are a major class of the drug targets. Rational design of drugs requires knowledge about the structure and function of these proteins. Working with membrane proteins, however, is experimentally challenging as the required technology is still emerging. Water being the medium of life, Nature has evolved specialized water channels called aquaporins. These transporters are found in all kingdoms of life – from simple microorganisms to humans – and function to maintain water homeos... more
