Boundary region between coexisting lipid phases as initial binding sites for Escherichia coli alpha-hemolysin: a real-time study.

Abstract

α-Hemolysin (HlyA) is a protein toxin, a member of the pore-forming Repeat in Toxin (RTX) family, secreted by some pathogenic strands of Escherichia coli. The mechanism of action of this toxin seems to involve three stages that ultimately lead to cell lysis: binding, insertion, and oligomerization of the toxin within the membrane. Since the influence of… (More)
