Mutant Bacteria Show How Changes in Membrane Proteins Affect Cell Functions

News

Phospholipids are water insoluble "building blocks" that define the membrane barrier surrounding cells and provide the structural scaffold and environment where membrane proteins reside. Researchers constructed mutants in bacteria and yeast in which the composition of these "building blocks" could be varied and studied how it adversely affected cellular functions.
