Interaction of the eukaryotic pore-forming cytolysin equinatoxin II with model membranes: 19F NMR studies.

Abstract

Sea anemones produce a family of 18-20 kDa proteins, the actinoporins, which lyse cells by forming pores in cell membranes. Sphingomyelin plays an important role in their lytic activity, with membranes lacking this lipid being largely refractory to these toxins. As a means of characterising membrane binding by the actinoporin equinatoxin II (EqTII), we have… (More)
