Gogol Research

Recent studies from the labs of Dr. Ed Gogol from the UMKC School of Biological Sciences in collaboration with Dr. Mark Fisher, University of Kansas Medical Center, Department of Biochemistry, have resulted in the cryoEM reconstruction of the Anthrax translocon. The three dimensional structure includes parts of the prepore crystal structure with the modeled channel and lipid bilayer superimposed. The structure was determined to a resolution of 16 Angstroms by single-particle analysis and three-dimensional reconstruction.
