Background: Methods for rapid assessment of interactions of small molecules with membrane proteins in detergent are lacking.
Results: Thermostability measurements of mitochondrial transporters display informative trends about detergent, lipid, substrate, and inhibitor interactions.
Conclusion: Mechanistic insights are obtained by studying the thermostability of mitochondrial transporters.
Significance: Information about the nature of compound interactions with membrane proteins can be obtained rapidly.
