Differential lipid binding of truncation mutants of Galleria mellonella apolipophorin III.

Apolipophorin III (apoLp-III) is a prototype exchangeable apolipoprotein that is amenable to structure-function studies. The protein folds as a bundle of five amphipathic alpha-helices and undergoes a dramatic conformational change upon lipid binding. Recently, we have shown that a truncation mutant of Galleria mellonella apoLp-III comprising helices 1-3 is… CONTINUE READING
