Proteins embedded in membranes are abundant (20-30% of proteins in any organism) and they perform some of the most essential of activities in biology. Their importance for biomedicine is evident as they are the molecular targets of more than 40% of all FDA-approved drugs. Yet, because membrane proteins present severe challenges for biophysical study, membrane proteins currently constitute less than 1% of known atomic-level structures.
