Production of Heteromeric Transmembrane Receptors with Defined Subunit Stoichiometry

Malinauskas, Tomas, Furukawa, Hiro (May 2016) Production of Heteromeric Transmembrane Receptors with Defined Subunit Stoichiometry. Structure, 24 (5). pp. 653-655. ISSN 0969-2126

Signal transduction across cell membranes often requires assembly of heteromeric receptors with defined stoichiometry. In this issue of Structure, Morales-Perez et al. (2016) present elegant methods for the expression of heteromeric nicotinic acetylcholine receptors with a defined α4β2 stoichiometry involving controlled baculovirus-mediated transduction and subunit counting by measurement of two fluorescent signals.
