Interactions of melittin and/or phospholipase A2 (PLA2) with circular dichroism (CD)-active phospholipid, bis(4'-n-octanoxyazobenzene-4-carboxyl)-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholin e (CDPC), were studied. In the presence of melittin at a lipid-to-melittin molar ratio (Ri) of 5, multilamellar dispersion, composed of CDPC and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine with a molar ratio of 1, underwent morphological change to form small melittin-lipid particles. When PLA2 was added to the melittin-lipid particles at… CONTINUE READING
