Structural studies of membrane lytic peptides: A comparison of magainin and melittin
Magainin and melittin are 2 members of a class of small amphipathic helical peptides which act as potent antibiotics or toxins. It has been shown that the peptides in this class interact directly with the lipid bilayer ...
Studies of amphiphilic helical peptides interacting with lipid bilayer membranes by x-ray and neutron scattering
A variety of amphiphilic helical peptides have been shown to exhibit a transition from adsorbing parallel to a membrane surface at low concentrations to inserting perpendicularly into the membrane at high concentrations. ...
Structure and dynamics of Escherichia coli adenylate kinase
Escherichia coli adenylate kinase has been studied by X-ray crystallographic and molecular dynamics approaches. The structures of E. coli adenylate kinase complexed with either AMP and AMPPNP, or AMP and ADP are presented. ...
The structural determinants of myoglobin stability
A quantitative understanding of the stability and expression of hemoglobins and myoglobins must take into account all of the factors which govern heme affinity and the folding of the globin portions of the molecules. In ...
