Copper pathway in the chloroplast

​Researchers at the Cell & Plant Physiology Laboratory and at the Chemistry and Biology of Metals laboratory from our institute study the copper homeostasis in plants. They propose a model of copper path within the membrane domains of HMA6 and HMA8 chloroplastic carriers.

Copper transport model at the membrane domain of ATPase-Cu+ HMA6.
The cysteine and histidine residues of the L1 loop identified and characterized biochemically in this study are stained in red. They are necessary for the release of the metal.
