Dynamin, a 100-kDa GTPase, has been implicated to be involved in synaptic vesicle recycling, receptor-mediated endocytosis, and other membrane sorting processes. Dynamin self-assembles into helical collars around the necks of coated pits and other membrane invaginations and mediates membrane scission. In vitro, dynamin has been reported to exist as dimers,(More)
We have de novo designed a heterodimeric coiled-coil formed by two peptides as a capture/delivery system that can be used in applications such as affinity tag purification, immobilization in biosensors, etc. The two strands are designated as K coil (KVSALKE heptad sequence) and E coil (EVSALEK heptad sequence), where positively charged or negatively charged(More)
