The structure of purified P-glycoprotein functionally reconstituted into liposomes was investigated by attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. A quantitative evaluation of the secondary structure and a kinetic of 2H/H exchange of the P-glycoprotein were performed both in the presence and in the absence of MgATP, MgATP-verapamil,(More)
Ligand-dependent changes in accessibility of purified P-glycoprotein, functionally reconstituted in liposomes, were investigated by fluorescence measurements. Trp quenching experiments provided evidence that P-glycoprotein adopts different tertiary structures upon binding of drug substrates in the absence and presence of MgATP and its nonhydrolyzable(More)
HBsAg particles are highly immunogenic and have been shown to be a suitable support for the presentation of foreign epitopes. More information about the topology of the HBsAg protein is a prerequisite to any rational attempt to replace the region of this protein with foreign epitopes without modifying the assembly of the particles. This topology and, more(More)
Hepatitis B surface antigen particles are highly immunogenic and have been shown to provide a suitable support for the presentation of foreign epitopes. More information about the topology of their constitutive protein, the S (small envelope) protein, is a prerequisite to any rational attempt to replace region of this protein with foreign epitopes without(More)
Hydrophobins are small fungal proteins that self-assemble at hydrophilic/hydrophobic interfaces into amphipathic membranes that, in the case of Class I hydrophobins, can be disassembled only by treatment with agents like pure trifluoroacetic acid. Here we characterize, by spectroscopic techniques, the structural changes that occur upon assembly at an(More)

Hepatitis B surface antigen particles are composed of the major viral envelope protein, the S protein, embedded into a lipid shell. The description of the folding of this protein within the particle membrane could provide helpful information for replacing surface-exposed protein domains by foreign sequences without destabilizing the particle structure.(More)
