Subunit stoichiometry of a mammalian K+ channel determined by construction of multimeric cDNAs
The subunit stoichiometry of the mammalian K+ channel KV1.1 (RCK1) was examined by linking together the coding sequences of 2-5 K+ channel subunits in a single open reading frame and tagging theExpand

Antibacterial and antifungal properties of alpha-helical, cationic peptides in the venom of scorpions from southern Africa.
Two novel pore-forming peptides have been isolated from the venom of the South-African scorpion Opistophtalmus carinatus. These peptides, designated opistoporin 1 and 2, differ by only one amino acidExpand
