    Abstract : A large number of proteins require certain metals to stabilize their structures or to function properly. About one third of all proteins in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) contain metals and it is estimated that approximately the same proportion of all proteins are metalloproteins. READ MORE

  3. 3. Advancing Metabolic Engineering through Combination of Systems Biology and Adaptive Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala, Sweden : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kuk-ki Hong; [2012]

    Abstract : The solute carrier family is the largest family of membrane-bound transporters in humans, with 430 members divided into 65 subfamilies. They transport various substrates across lipid barriers and are vital for absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion in all cell types in the body. READ MORE
