Molecular dynamics simulations of the insertion of two ideally amphipathic lytic peptides LK(15) and LK(9) in a 1,2-dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine monolayer.

Abstract

We present here the results of 1-ns molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of two ideally amphipathic lytic peptides, namely LK(15) and LK(9), in a 1,2-dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine monolayer with two different cross-sectional areas per lipid of 80 A(2) (loose film) and 63 A(2) (tight standard film). These peptides are lytic, ideally amphipathic with a… (More)
