The role of electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions in the binding and penetration of beta-lactoglobulin (betaLG) to preformed lipid membranes was studied using various phospholipid micelles and vesicles. Zwitterionic lysophospholipid micelles are able to induce the beta-sheet to alpha-helix transition, as judged by circular dichroism (CD), but the degree of transition is dramatically below and the amount of lipid required above that for anionic phospholipids with equivalent hydrocarbon… CONTINUE READING
