Overcoming membrane protein research roadblocks: A Queensland facility for membrane protein production and crystallisation (2012–2013)
Membrane protein crystal structure determination is regarded as frontier research because of challenges in
producing and crystallising these proteins. Our aim is to establish a unique facility in Queensland that will benefit Australian science by addressing these two roadblocks. Specifically we will enhance world-leading protein production and protein crystallography infrastructure already established in Queensland, by enabling large-scale expression of membrane proteins in a range of cell systems, and by implementing new membrane protein crystallisation and detection methods.
