The structure and function of membrane proteins is partly determined by the interaction of these proteins with the lipids of the membrane. Peptides forming single membrane-spanning alpha-helices, such as the WALP peptide (acetyl-GWWL(AL)(n)WWA-amide), are good models for such interactions. This interaction can be studied by investigating the aggregation of(More)
In this study the membrane orientation of a tryptophan-flanked model peptide, WALP23, was determined by using peptides that were labeled at different positions along the sequence with the environmentally sensitive fluorescent label BADAN. The fluorescence properties, reflecting the local polarity, were used to determine the tilt and rotation angles of the(More)
