Description
This ORGANITRA project addresses transmembrane transport. Lipid bilayer membranes not only define the borders of cells and their compartments but are also implicated in metabolic processes and signal transduction. Membranes function as impermeable barriers for ionic and hydrophilic species which can only cross the membrane with the aid of dedicated membrane proteins. For biotechnological and biophysical applications, the development of anion carriers that can bind an anion and transport it across the lipid bilayer could be of great relevance. In this project, synthetic anion receptors will be developed to bind biologically relevant organic phosphorylated compoun...
