Caption: The model of the ATP8A2 flippase transport mechanism developed by the researchers is shown. The flippase molecule is the large grey area and you can see the lipid molecule with the blue 'tail' moving along an open channel in the protein, which also contains water molecules (red spheres with white spots).
