Are oblique orientated alpha-helices used by antimicrobial peptides for membrane invasion?

Abstract

Oblique orientated alpha-helices are highly specialised protein structural elements that penetrate membranes at a shallow angle and are used to promote membrane destabilisation by a number of protein classes. Here, the use of extended hydrophobic moment methodology shows that the amphibian extrudates, aurein 1.2 and citropin 1.1, may use oblique orientated… (More)
