Atomic view of cellular pump reveals how bacteria send out proteins

Atomic view of cellular pump reveals how bacteria send out proteinsWithin the structure of the simple but previously unexamined pump, researchers found a striking feature: a large, water-filled channel, a natural environment for the hydrophilic proteins that must pass through. Their work offers new insight into the mechanics that allow bacteria to manipulate their environments. More »
