The channel activity of colicin E1 was studied in planar lipid bilayers and liposomes. Colicin E1 pore-forming activity was found to depend on the curvature of the lipid bilayer, as judged by the effect on channel activity of curvature-modulating agents. In particular, the colicin-induced trans-membrane current was augmented by lysophosphatidylcholine and(More)
Chemical modification and photodynamic treatment of the colicin E1 channel-forming domain (P178) in vesicular and planar bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs) was used to elucidate the role of tryptophan residues in colicin E1 channel activity. Modification of colicin tryptophan residues by N-bromosuccinimide (NBS), as judged by the loss of tryptophan(More)
