The structural studies of membrane proteins lag those of their soluble counterparts. This is mainly due to the difficulty in crystallizing membrane proteins that have large hydrophobic regions that are in contact with the alkyl chains of the lipids in the membrane. This chapter describes specific methods for membrane protein crystal growth including screening with detergents, lipidic cubic‐phase crystallization and antibody fragment approaches.

Keywords:   screening with detergents, lipidic cubic‐phase crystallization, antibody fragment approaches, characterization with neutrons, electron microscopy
