Current Understanding of the Mechanisms by which Membrane-Active Peptides Permeate and Disrupt Model Lipid Membranes.

Abstract

Three classes of membrane active peptides (MAPs) are considered in this review: cell penetrating peptides (CPPs); anti-microbial peptides (AMPs), and amyloidal peptides. We summarize both experimental and theoretical results for several representative peptides in these different classes, which highlight commonalities in their interactions with model lipid… (More)
