Dynorphin-phospholipid membrane interactions: role of phospholipid head-group and cholesterol.

Abstract

The interaction of the kappa-opioid receptor-selective heptadecapeptide dynorphin A(1-17) (Tyr1-Gly-Gly-Phe-Leu5-Arg-Arg-Ile-Arg-Pro10-Lys-Leu-Lys-Trp-As p15-Asn-Glu) with phospholipid membranes has been investigated by monitoring the leakage of the internal aqueous contents of liposomes, the changes in the tryptophan emission spectrum, and the collisional… (More)
