The interaction of the major bovine seminal plasma protein, PDC-109 with lipid membranes was investigated by isothermal titration calorimetry. Binding of the protein to model membranes made up of diacyl phospholipids was found to be endothermic, with positive values of binding enthalpy and entropy, and could be analyzed in terms of a single type of binding(More)
OmpG is an intermediate size, monomeric, outer membrane protein from Escherichia coli, with n beta = 14 beta-strands. It has a large pore that is amenable to modification by protein engineering. The stoichiometry ( N b = 20) and selectivity ( K r = 0.7-1.2) of lipid-protein interaction with OmpG incorporated in dimyristoyl phosphatidylcholine bilayer(More)
FomA, the major outer membrane protein of Fusobacterium nucleatum, was expressed and purified in Escherichia coli and reconstituted from detergent in bilayer membranes of phosphatidylcholines with chain lengths from C(12:0) to C(17:0). The conformation and orientation of membrane-incorporated FomA were determined from polarized, attenuated total reflection,(More)
Multi-drug resistance capacity for Mycobacterium leprae demands the profound need for developing new multi-targeted anti-leprosy drugs. Mur ligases (MurC, MurD, MurE, and MurF) involved in biosynthesis of bacterial cell wall peptidoglycan are the best known and validated targets for antibacterial therapy. Transition-state analogs, such as phosphonates,(More)
