The MscS animation in spacefill is wonderful! I'm always amazed how
mechanistic proteins can look.
I guess if this protein is found in prokaryotes, its known to be an
early channel. Has anyone studied that? i.e. its mechanism looks quite
'basic'. I wonder if anything is known about how this design may have
been elaborated during the course of evolution?
One thing, the page takes a while to load due to several structures.
Can loading of several apps be done in serial?
Thanks for the great page!
