Open Access
On The Cover: Crystal structure of the first potassium channel in a lipid bilayer. Shown is a cross-section of a K+ channel in a lipid bilayer exposing the cavity. The lipid bilayer components are rendered in molecular surface representation: water in cyan, the phosphorus and phosphate oxygen in magenta and in red, and the acyl chains in gray. The channel protein is depicted in orange with K+ in yellow. Side chains of residues at the depth of the phosphate lipid headgroups are shown in green (uncharged) and in dark blue (positively charged). For details see the article by Santos et al., pages 43063–43070....
