Scientists at Stockholm University in Stockholm have established a mechanism by which our cells fine-tune their internal pH and sodium levels. Using cryo electron microscopy they have determined the first 3D-structure of a so-called “sodium/proton exchanger” that carries out this task. Ever since the discovery of these transport machines by Peter Mitchell in the 1970s we finally have a molecular picture of this fundamental process carried out in most, if not all, cells. Their findings could help in the development of anticancer drugs in particular.
