New publication - Copper-transporting P-type ATPases use a unique ion-release pathway

New publication from Poul Nissen's group published in the Journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology. Results from this study provide deeper insight into causes of serious diseases involving copper metabolism. Mapping the mechanism that regulates the transport of copper across the cell membrane and out of the body’s cells actually provides a new understanding of conditions related to chronic imbalance in the body’s level of copper.
