This volume of the contains three reviews on membrane channel proteins: the first by Szczot et al., titled The Form and Function of PIEZO2; the second by Ruprecht & Kunji, titled Structural Mechanism of Transport of Mitochondrial Carriers; and the third by McIlwain et al., titled Membrane Exporters of Fluoride Ion. These reviews provide nice illustrations of just how far evolution has been able to play with the basic helix-bundle architecture of integral membrane proteins to produce membrane channels and transporters of widely different functions.
