We have purified the mammalian synaptophysin/synaptobrevin (SYP/VAMP2) complex to homogeneity in the presence of cholesterol and determined the 3D EM structure by single particle reconstruction. The structure reveals that SYP and VAMP2 assemble into a hexameric ring wherein 6 SYP molecules bind 6 VAMP2 dimers. Using the EM map as a constraint, a three(More)
—Membrane proteins embedded in bi-layer lipids of cell membrane have unique functions including inter-cell communication, ions/molecules transport. And there is more than 50% of drug design emphasizes on membrane proteins specifically studying on their structure and formation. Recently we reported the structural and functional studies of membrane protein(More)
