This study describes the use of brominated phospholipids to distinguish between lipid and detergent binding sites on the surface of a typical alpha-helical membrane protein. Reaction centers isolated from Rhodobacter sphaeroides were cocrystallized with added brominated phospholipids. X-ray structural analysis...

BAK is a key effector of mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization (MOMP) whose molecular mechanism of action remains to be fully dissected in intact cells, mainly due to the inherent complexity of the intracellular apoptotic machinery. Here we show that the...

Gelsolin is a calcium-, pH- and lipid-dependent actin filament severing/capping protein whose main function is to regulate the assembly state of the actin cytoskeleton. Gelsolin is associated with membranes in cells, and it is generally assumed that this interaction is...

The aim of this study was to identify proteins that could inhibit the activity of the peptide sequence representing the N-terminal of the surface protein gp41 of HIV, corresponding to the fusion peptide of the virus (HIV-1 FP). To do...
