Maintaining Equilibrium Na+/Ca2+ exchangers (NCX) are membrane transporters that maintain the homeostasis of cytosolic Ca2+ and play an essential role in Ca2+ signaling. Despite a long history of physiological work and a large body of functional data, the structural basis underlying the ion exchange mechanism of NCX is poorly understood. Liao et al. (p. 686; see the Perspective by Abramson et al.) present a high-resolution crystal structure of an NCX from Methanococcus jannaschii and… Expand
