Molecular dynamics simulations of Na+ and leucine transport by LeuT

Chen, Rong; Chung, Shin-Ho


Molecular dynamics simulations are used to gain insight into the binding of Na+ and leucine substrate to the bacterial amino acid transporter LeuT, focusing on the crystal structures of LeuT in the outward-open and inward-open states. For both conformations of LeuT, a third Na+ binding site involving Glu290 in addition to the two sites identified from the crystal structures is observed. Once the negative charge from Glu290 in the inward-open LeuT is removed, the ion bound to the third site is...[Show more]
