Permeabilization of the mitochondrial inner membrane by short cecropin-A-melittin hybrid peptides.

Abstract

A number of cecropin-A-melittin hybrid peptides have previously been shown to be potent antibacterial agents [Andreu, D., Ubach, J., Boman, A., Wahlin, B., Wade, D., Merrifield, R. B. & Boman, H. G. (1992) FEBS Lett. 296, 190-194]. In the present report we analyze their action on biological systems using rat liver mitochondria as a test system. We… (More)
