239: Roosild et al. (2005) NMR Structure of Mistic, a Membrane-Integrating Protein for Membrane Protein Expression. Science 307 (5713): 1317

Science -- Roosild et al. 307 (5713): 1317:

A membrane bound protein which self assembles in the membrane. When another protein is attached to it, the other protein can assemble in-membrane as well. This may imply an early mechanism for moving proteins into bacterial cell membranes, and there are many applications in various forms of biological and evolutionary research.
