Tony Jackson's group, working with colleagues in the Department's X-Ray Crystallographic and Biophysics facilities and in the Department of Pharmacology, have published a paper in Journal of Biological Chemistry "Crystal Structure and Molecular Imaging of the Nav Channel β3 Subunit Indicates a Trimeric Assembly". They hope their discovery will lead to improvements in drugs that act on the sodium channel to treat a range of cardiac and pain conditions. For the full story see the main University news web site.
