Get3 Receptor Complex

Caption: Cristal structure of the Get3-receptor-complex. The two Get3 subunits are shown in green and blue. This is where the Get1 receptor-proteins (red and orange) bind. Upon interaction with its membrane receptor the Get3 dimer gradually opens up to allow for the controlled TA protein insertion.
