The protein which inspired the image for October in our 2020 calendar is a sodium-coupled leucine symporter, a prokaryotic homologue of mammalian sodium neurotransmitter symporters (NSS). The NSS proteins in mammals are responsible for clearing the synapse after a nerve signal, transporting neurotransmitters back into the axon and making it ready for another signal. The NSS proteins are common targets for anti-depressants.
