Scientists solve structure of important protein in energy storage of cells

Scientists solve structure of important protein in energy storage of cells – Scientists at Trinity College Dublin, using a highly specialised crystallography technique have solved a large protein structure that will increase our understanding of energy generation and storage in cells. The findings have been recently published in the online publication of Nature.
