Biologic Model of Mechanosensitive Channel of Small Conductance 2OAU 3D printed in full-color sandstone. Chains are color-coded to visualize the protein intra-membrane (red) and cytoplasmic (blue) regions.
Mechanosensitive channels (MS channels) are proteins found in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell membranes that open a conductance pore in response to mechanical stress. MS channels have been implicated in touch, hearing, cardiovascular regulation, sensing of gravity and osmotic stress.
