An EmrE-ging market: Oriented solid-state NMR spectroscopy and biochemical cross-linking experiments were used to show that the ligand-free membrane protein transporter EmrE forms anti-parallel dimers with different monomer tilt angles relative to the lipid bilayer. In addition, subtle conformational changes were detected upon drug binding that emphasize the need for an atomic-resolution structure.
