New York Consortium on Membrane Protein Structure (NYCOMPS), funded by the National Institutes of Healthis one of six specialized centers in the protein production phase of the Protein Structure Initiative (PSI).
The center’s goal is to speed structure determination for membrane proteins, starting with bioinformatics analysis of sequence. The investigators also address bottlenecks in the expression, purification, and structure determination of membrane proteins. The center uses automated cloning and expression, high-throughput expression screening, detergents to help solubilize folded proteins, and large-scale purification and labeling of proteins for NMR and X-ray crystallography. Proteins are expressed in insect and mammalian cells as well as E. coli. For more information on NYCOMPS please visit the website.
