The interaction of the so-called fusion peptide of the human immunodeficiency virus gp41 envelope glycoprotein with the target cell membrane is believed to trigger the fusion process which allows the entry of the virus into the cell. Many studies on the interaction of the fusion peptide with biological membranes have been carried out using synthetic peptides and model membranes. Due to the variety of experimental systems and sequences used, some controversy exists, concerning mainly the type of… CONTINUE READING
