Evidence for a role for oligomerization in prestin

Abstract

Clear evidence now points to mammalian prestin being a tetramer. Tetramerization is found to be ubiquitous in the Slc26a family, of which mammalian prestin is a member. However, no functional role for oligomerization has yet been found. I here show evidence that prestin oligomerization is possibly important for correct function.
