As a first step toward a novel de novo structure prediction approach for alpha-helical membrane proteins, we developed coarse-grained knowledge-based potentials to score the mutual configuration of transmembrane (TM) helices. Using a comprehensive database of 71 known membrane protein structures, pairwise potentials depending solely on amino acid types and(More)
The glutamine transporter SNAT3 contributes to the glutamine fluxes in liver, kidney, and brain. We heterologously co-expressed SNAT3 with the electrogenic sodium-bicarbonate cotransporter NBCe1 in Xenopus laevis oocytes and measured cytosolic pH and membrane current in voltage clamp. Because of the increased buffer capacity contributed by the NBCe1 (Becker(More)
