The roles of conserved and nonconserved cysteinyl residues in the oligomerization and function of mammalian prestin.

Abstract

The creation of several prestin knockout and knockin mouse lines has demonstrated the importance of the intrinsic outer hair cell membrane protein prestin to mammalian hearing. However, the structure of prestin remains largely unknown, with even its major features in dispute. Several studies have suggested that prestin forms homo-oligomers that may be… (More)
