Neha Kamat and biophysics trainees, Miranda Jacobs and Maggie Boyd, recently published an article in PNAS. Her lab set out to synthesize membrane proteins outside of a cell, and in the process developed a new technique that improved the rate and yield of these proteins. The technique also gave rise to a new understanding of mechanical processes that could be occurring inside a cell.
