The GB virus C/hepatitis G virus (GBV C/HGV) is a Flaviviridae member that despite its non pathogenicity, has become of great interest given that it could inhibit the replication of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Therefore, a better knowledge of the virus peptides involved in the cellular membrane fusion mechanism has become our aim. The selected(More)
In this paper, we aimed to continue the previous study undertaken with one segment of E1 protein belonging to the GB virus C/hepatitis G virus (GBV-C/HGV), specifically between the 53-66 amino acids and their palmitoyl derivative peptide. The sequence selection has been made on the basis of different prediction algorithms of hydrophobicity and antigenicity.(More)
In order to determine the ability of 1,2-dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and 1,2-dioleoyl phosphatidylglycerol (DOPG) to host peptide sequences belonging to the E2 protein of GBV virus C/Hepatitis G virus, the behaviour of Langmuir monolayers formed by these phospholipids and E2 (12-26), E2 (354-363) and E2 (chimeric) peptide sequences was analysed(More)
The behavior of the binary mixed Langmuir monolayers of bovine insulin (INS) and phosphatidylcholine (PC) spread at the air-water interface was investigated under various subphase conditions. Pure and mixed monolayers were spread on water, on NaOH and phosphate-buffered solutions of pH 7.4, and on Zn(2+)-containing solutions. Miscibility and interactions(More)
