Comments "The most thoroughly characterized Mg2+ transport proteins to date are from prokaryotic sources. Although several genes associated with Mg2+ transport in eukaryotic systems have been recently identified (Table 1), this review will focus on the only two divalent cation channels to be crystallized: CorA and MgtE."
