Translocator Protein (TSPO) Structure To Spur New Treatments For Anxiety

Michigan State University (MSU) researchers recently published new data in the journal “Science” providing a first ever look at the crystallized structure of translocator protein (TSPO) (18kDa). Translocator protein is located within the outer portion of the mitochondrial membrane. Its primary¬†function is to transport cholesterol within mitochondria, which then is utilized to produce steroids. TSPO …
