Elastic modeling of biomembranes and lipid bilayers
Then, the protein/membrane complex with lipid bilayer
system and water was built to simulate the environment of Cx50 in cell.
Phospholipids are one class of the membrane lipids, and they constitute a major component of the membrane as they can form lipid bilayers
Importantly, electron crystallography enables us to analyze the structure of membrane proteins in a lipid bilayer
, while structure analysis by ordinary X-ray crystallography is achieved in a detergent solubilized condition.
alpha]HL is secreted by Staphylococcus aureus as a monomeric water-soluble 293--amino acid protein that forms an oligomeric pore in lipid bilayers
Liposomes enable their contents to act at the correct site (affected area) by injecting drug solutions encapsulated in a lipid bilayer
into the body.
The spiral peptide called KLAKLAKKLAKLAK acts against bacteria by puncturing their lipid bilayer
membranes, but has low toxicity toward mammalian cells.
There is a lipid bilayer
around our body cells and overdose of Omega 6 fats compared to Omega 3 fats makes this layer stiff.
OA may enhance percutaneous penetration mainly through a dual mechanism involving stratum corneum lipid bilayer
perturbation and lacunae formation as earlier studied by Jiang .
Their biomem-branes are not a simple lipid bilayer
but contain also proteins and sugar-coat on their surface.
While simple viruses consist of only a protein shell and genetic information, more complex viruses, such as flaviviruses, also contain a lipid bilayer
that sits between the protein shell and viral genome The virus core, within a lipid bilayer
, has a less-ordered structure than the external, icosahedral scaffold of 90 glycoprotein E dimers.
Vibrio cholerae cytolysin/haemolysin (VCC) (1) is a prominent member of a large, heterologous family of membrane-damaging proteins, collectively called pore-forming toxins (PFTs) (2,3) that cause lysis of the target cell by punching transmembrane holes in the plasma membrane lipid bilayer
