Simulation des Transports durch Außenmembrankanäle
Gram-negative bacteria feature an outer and an inner membrane. Especially the outer membrane provides an effective barrier for the entry of noxious substances, though at the same time ions, nutrients, and metabolites need to be able to get inside. Many of these substances either enter through general diffusion or through substrate-specific membrane pores. Over the last years, molecular dynamics simulations have become an extremely valuable tool for understanding the structure-function relationship of membrane transport.
