All living cells to date are surrounded by a membrane. It is hard to imagine how life could have evolved without a membrane that separates components of vital metabolic processes from the external milieu; hence membranes provide an identity to the cell. Within these membranes, there are number of proteins that perform vital biological processes such as signalling or transport. Knowledge on the structure of membrane proteins tells us how they are oriented relative to the lipid bilayer and often suggests how they work and in search for better drugs to improve human and animal health. I will discuss the general principles that govern the architecture of membrane proteins and how they perform a wide variety of functions using simple rules.
