Complexes of melittin with detergents and phospholipids have been characterized by fluorescence, circular dichroism, ultracentrifugation, quasi-elastic light scattering and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments. By ultracentrifugation and quasi-elastic light-scattering measurements it is shown that melittin forms stoichiometrically well-defined complexes with dodecylphosphocholine micelles consisting of one melittin molecule and approximately forty detergent molecules. Evidence from… CONTINUE READING
