Two cholesterol recognition/interaction amino-acid consensus peptides, N-acetyl-LWYIKC-amide, and N-acetyl-CLWYIK-amide, have been coupled to exchangeable mimics of Chol (cholesterol) and Phos (1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycerol-3-phospho-(1'rac-glycerol)) via disulfide bond formation. Equilibration between Chol and Phos via thiolate-disulfide interchange(More)
N-Acetyl-LWYIKC-amide, a cholesterol recognition/interaction amino acid consensus (CRAC) peptide, has been found capable of recognizing an exchangeable form of cholesterol in liquid-disordered (l(d)) bilayers derived from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC). In sharp contrast, such recognition is barely detectable in analogous(More)
The interactions between an exchangeable mimic of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC), Phos(±), with an exchangeable mimic of cholesterol, Chol, have been analyzed in fluid bilayers by means of nearest-neighbor recognition measurements. These interactions have been found to be very similar to those of an exchangeable mimic of(More)
