||Abstract: "To understand ATP permeation through VDAC, [investigators] solved the crystal structure of mouse VDAC1 (mVDAC1) in the presence of ATP, revealing a low-affinity binding site. Guided by these coordinates, [they] initiated hundreds of molecular dynamics simulations to construct a Markov state model of ATP permeation."
||P.628 left column 2nd paragraph: "The single-channel conductance values with and without ATP (determined from the slopes of the lines in Fig. 2b,c) are 3.04 and 5.24 nS, respectively. Thus, ATP reduced the conductance by 42%, results in excellent agreement with the experimental drop of 43% observed in single-channel currents under saturating ATP [primary source]."
