Membrane proteins data analysis by cryoEM shows some specificities, as can be found in other typical investigations such as biochemistry, biophysics, or X-ray crystallography. Membrane proteins are typically surrounded by an amphipathic belt that will have some degree of influence on the 3D reconstruction and analysis. In this chapter, we review our experience with the ABC transporter BmrA, as well as our statistical analysis of amphipathic belts around membrane proteins, to bring awareness on some particular features of membrane protein investigations by cryoEM.
