Speakers -------- N/A Membrane Proteins have long been recognized as major drug targets, and delineating their structure and function have been strong foci. However, a smaller percentage of stalwart researchers have been dauntless enough to tackle the challenges of extracting, expressing and purifying these formidable proteins. In particular, removing membrane proteins from their hydrophobic environment and keeping them stable in an aqueous state is a significant accomplishment that will be discussed in this meeting both through case studies and through sharing of protocols. Though yields of membrane protein production only reach into milligrams, this innovative work holds great promise for future research that may subsequently result in new therapies and drugs. Join this indepth exploration of how to obtain functional membrane proteins, and learn more about this important protein class.
