Caption: Prokaryotic mechanosensitive ion channel molecule. Computer model showing two views of the molecular structure of a Mechanosensitive Channel of Large Conductance (MscL) from Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. MscLs play a critical role in converting physical stress at the cell membrane into an electrochemical response. In prokaryotes such as bacteria the channel opens in response to stretch forces in the membrane and helps regulate osmotic pressure within the cell by controlling the passage of ions through it.
