Lab News

New team member! 

We welcome Suhwan (Paul) Lee, a new postbaccalaureate student from Ole Miss!

New insights into coupling during symport

A recent collaboration with Gary Rudnick has just been accepted for publication. We identify a key molecular interaction responsible for responding to bound ligands and required for the major transport-related conformational change. See it in the bioRxiv here.

Neurotransmitter sequestration reviewed

A review of our structure-function studies with the Schulinder lab has just been published in the Journal of General Physiology. Learn how molecular modeling has driven biochemical studies to identify key regions of the vesicular monoamine transporter, VMAT2.
