Abstract

In a recent paper published in the Biochemical Journal (1), Lolli and collaborators presented evidence that the C-terminal STAS domain of the motor protein prestin possesses an anion-binding site. This discovery might bring light to an aspect of the function of this mysterious and fascinating protein that is crucial for the human hearing system.
