Combined information from biochemical and molecular biological experiments reveals a consistent structural rhythm that underlies the construction of all membrane carriers and perhaps all transport systems. Biochemical work shows that while some carrier proteins function as monomers, others operate as dimers. But despite this variation, all examples can be modelled as having a pair of membrane-embedded domains, each of.
