Synergism between halide binding and proton transport in a CLC-type exchanger.


The Cl-/H+ exchange-transporter CLC-ec1 mediates stoichiometric transmembrane exchange of two Cl- ions for one proton. A conserved tyrosine residue, Y445, coordinates one of the bound Cl- ions visible in the structure of this protein and is located near the intersection of the Cl- and H+ pathways. Mutants of this tyrosine were scrutinized for effects on the… (More)
