New insights into protein secretion through cell membranes

The study, led by Gunnar von Heijne at Stockholm University/SciLifeLab, was published in Nature Structural and Molecular Biology.

“The study provides new insights into how proteins are secreted through the cell membrane. The new force measurement method can also be used in other situations where you want to measure the forces acting on a protein chain inside a living cell” says Gunnar von Heijne at the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University.
