Cover Story (view full-size image): Cells, life’s smallest units, are defined within the enclosure of thin, continuous membranes. These confine the molecular machinery required for life and replication of cells. Membrane proteins establish and maintain electrical and solute gradients, vital to normal cellular functions, and are key pharmacological targets. Despite major advances in crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy, structural studies of membrane proteins remain challenging. Nuclear magnetic resonance is an advanced tool for membrane protein structural studies in mimetics and membranes at the atomic level of detail. We discuss the applications of solution and solid-state NMR to structural and interaction studies of membrane proteins, alongside new developments in signal and sensitivity enhancement through dynamic nuclear polarization.
