Previously we found that ethanol increases expression of the constitutive 70-kDa heat shock protein (Hsc70) in NG108-15 neuroblastoma x glioma cells. We suggested that known ethanol actions on cellular protein trafficking may relate to Hsc70 induction because Hsc70 functions as a molecular chaperone. Here we use a subtractive hybridization protocol to(More)
The effects of hydrophobic thickness and the molar phosphatidylglycerol (PG) content of lipid bilayers on the structure and membrane interaction of three cationic antimicrobial peptides were examined: aurein 2.2, aurein 2.3 (almost identical to aurein 2.2, except for a point mutation at residue 13), and a carboxy C-terminal analog of aurein 2.3.
