Reciprocal effects of apolipoprotein and lytic peptide analogs on membranes. Cross-sectional molecular shapes of amphipathic alpha helixes control membrane stability.
Apolipoprotein (class A) amphipathic helixes are postulated to act as detergents by virtue of their cross-section being wedge-shaped. Using computer analysis of naturally occurring class A and lyticExpand

[Effects of indomethacin on 45Ca uptake and membrane fluidity of mitochondria and microsomes from rat liver].
We have reported previously that indomethacin-pretreatment could induce marked hepatic protection in rats. The present work reported effects of indomethacin on calcium regulation and membraneExpand

Hydrophobic lipid additives affect membrane stability and phase behavior of N-monomethyldioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine.
The rate of formation of high-curvature intermediates or disordered cubic phases in N-methyldioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (N-methyl-DOPE) dispersions with or without additives was studied by 31PExpand

Pyrazine derivatives affect membrane fluidity of vascular smooth muscle microsomes in relation to their biological activity.
We have previously demonstrated that several structurally similar pyrazine derivatives, tetramethylpyrazine (TMP), triethylpyrazine (3EP) and tetraethylpyrazine (TEP) consistently inhibited a wideExpand

Analogues of tetramethylpyrazine affect membrane fluidity of liposomes: relationship to their biological activities.
Several structurally similar pyrazine derivatives, tetramethylpyrazine, triethylpyrazine and tetraethylpyrazine have previously been found to inhibit a broad spectrum of plasmalemma-associatedExpand
