They also constitute 20-30% of the protein coding potential of most genomes. However, the structures and molecular mechanisms of the function of membrane proteins remain much more poorly characterized than is the case for most soluble proteins. The Dumont laboratory focuses on understanding mechanisms of membrane protein function at the molecular level.CredentialsEducation1972BA | Harvard UniversityPhysics1975MS | Western Washington State CollPhysics1980PhD | Johns Hopkins UniversityBiophysicsPublicationsJournal Articles5/30/2022Dumont ME, Konopka JB.
