Single mutation effects on conformational change and membrane deformation of influenza hemagglutinin fusion peptides.

The single mutation effect on the conformational change and membrane permeation of influenza hemagglutinin fusion peptides has been studied with molecular dynamics simulations. A total of seven peptides, including wild-type fusion peptide and its six single point mutants (G1E, G1S, G1V, G4V, E11A, and W14A, all with no fusion or hemifusion activity) are… CONTINUE READING
