General remarks

Our basic methodology to study membrane proteins is very similar to that of soluble proteins. However, as membrane proteins reside in a lipid membrane and are simultaneously exposed to a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic medium, there are a few critical modifications in our experimental approaches. This mostly relates to their functional overexpression, stabilization in the detergent-solubilized state, crystallization and functional characterization.
