Secondary active transporters utilize existing concentration gradients in cells for the uphill transport of molecules. As the coupled substrates are typically ions, mostly sodium or protons, many of these transporters are electrogenic. Their characteristics can be investigated using electrophysiological techniques like SSM-based electrophysiology. In the second session of the Transporter Webinar Series we meet Christine Ziegler and Camilo Perez, who share their stories about using this technology to investigate inhibition and regulation of secondary active transporters.
