Ioan Kosztin & Gavin King

Prof. Ioan Kosztin (left) developed a theoretical model that shows there is more than one way a protein can break free of the membrane involving several different pathways. Prof. Gavin King (right) used high precision atomic force microscopy experiments to measure the force required for proteins to break free from the membrane.

MU researchers gain a greater understanding of cell behavior by developing theoretical model of how proteins work with cell membranes
