• Ammonia Transporter Amt

    SURFE²R N1 recordings of the ammonium transporter AmtB. AmtB was purified from E.Coli and incororated into liposomes. Mirandela et al, 2018.

Dr. Arnaud Javelle - Statement about the SURFE²R N1 Device

Icon N1  “Using the SURFE2R N1 we have recently obtained high quality data in a very short period of time. We have developed an assay to measure the activity of ammonium transporters from the Amt protein family. There has been considerable controversy over the mechanism of ammonium transport by Amt proteins and the controversy was due to the lack of quantitative kinetic data characterizing the activity of the proteins at the single channel level. The SSM technologies allows to overcome this hurdle and we are now capable of answering very challenging functional questions concerning the mechanisms and the energetics of these transporters."
