Comparative studies of the effect of a short synthetic cationic peptide, pEM-2 (KKWRWWLKALAKK), derived from the C-terminus of myotoxin II from the venom of the snake Bothrops asper on phospholipid mono- and bilayers were performed by means of Langmuir Blodgett (LB) monolayer technique, atomic force microscopy and calcein leakage assay. Phospholipid mono- and bilayers composed of single zwitterionic or anionic phospholipids as well as lipid mixtures mimicking bacterial cell membrane were used… Expand
Investigating the effect of a single glycine to alanine substitution on interactions of antimicrobial peptide latarcin 2a with a lipid membrane
TLDR
Data indicate that decrease in the flexibility of ltc2a induced by the modification in the hinge region is likely to increase the peptide’s nonspecific interactions with zwitterionic cell membranes and potentially increase its toxicity against eukaryotic cells. Expand
Membrane selectivity by W-tagging of antimicrobial peptides.
TLDR
The generality of the high membrane selectivity for other peptides of this type is demonstrated, andReplacing cholesterol with ergosterol results in an increased sensitivity for peptide-induced lysis, in analogy to the antifungal properties of such peptides. Expand
Investigating the effects of L- to D-amino acid substitution and deamidation on the activity and membrane interactions of antimicrobial peptide anoplin.
TLDR
The results suggest that amidated forms of peptides are likely to possess higher membrane binding affinity due to the increased charge and membrane lytic activity of all derivatives was found to depend strongly on membrane composition and lipid/peptide ratio. Expand
Imaging the membrane lytic activity of bioactive peptide latarcin 2a.
TLDR
Interactions of these two ltc2a derivatives with supported "raft" lipid bilayer were studied by in situ atomic force microscopy to investigate the potential anticancer activity of the peptides since some breast and prostate cancer cell lines contain higher levels of cholesterol-rich lipid rafts than non-cancer cells.

TLDR
The analysis of the collected data evidenced that the influence of cardiolipin as well as inorganic electrolyte on the properties of the studied films is directly connected with molecular structure of monolayers components. Expand
Specificity and mechanism of action of alpha-helical membrane-active peptides interacting with model and biological membranes by single-molecule force spectroscopy
TLDR
It is revealed that cationic membrane-active peptides can exclusively target negatively charged prokaryotic and cancer cell model membranes rather than normal eukaryotic cellmodel membranes. Expand

Snake venom phospholipases A(2): a novel tool against bacterial diseases.
TLDR
The reports demonstrate that svPLA(2)-derived peptides have the potential to counteract microbial infections, and identification of the bactericidal sites in svPLA (2)s has potential for developing novel antimicrobials. Expand
Membrane cholesterol modulates the cytolytic mechanism of myotoxin II, a Lys49 phospholipase A2 homologue from the venom of Bothrops asper
TLDR
Physicochemical properties that depend on membrane cholesterol content significantly influence the cytolytic mechanism of myotoxin II, reinforcing the concept that the primary site of action of Lys49 PLA2 myotoxins is the plasma membrane. Expand

Interaction of the antimicrobial peptide dicynthaurin with membrane phospholipids at the air-liquid interface.
TLDR
The adsorption of the peptide to the negatively charged lipid monolayer and the fluidization of the condensed chain lattice suggest a direct link to the peptides' ability to expand the bacterial membrane that would be relevant for the in vivo mode of action. Expand

Mechanism of the cell-penetrating peptide transportan 10 permeation of lipid bilayers.

The results disclose that hCT(9-32) preferentially interacts with negatively charged phospholipids and does not insert spontaneously into lipid monolayers, which supports a nonreceptor-mediated endocytic internalization pathway as previously suggested. Expand

TLDR
The mesoscopic organization adopted by two primary amphipathic peptides, P(beta) and P(alpha), in Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films made of either the pure peptide or peptide-phospholipid mixtures was examined by atomic force microscopy, suggesting that primary amphips may share, to some extent, common mechanisms of interaction with membranes.
