X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) is an inherited disorder caused by deleterious mutations in the ABCD1 gene. The ABCD1 protein transports very long-chain FAs (VLCFAs) from the cytosol into the peroxisome where the VLCFAs are degraded through β-oxidation. ABCD1 dysfunction leads to...

Among the structurally diverse collection of lipids that comprise the membrane lipidome, polyunsaturated phospholipids are particularly vulnerable to oxidation. The role of α-tocopherol (vitamin E) is to protect this influential class of membrane phospholipid from oxidative damage. Whether lipid-lipid interactions...

Alkanes are known to promote the fluid lamellar (Lα)-to-inverted hexagonal (HII) phase transition of different phospholipids. In this work, we studied the interaction of decane and tetradecane with self-assemblies formed of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-phosphoethanolamine (POPE), using sequential 2H and 31P solid-state NMR spectroscopy....

A synergistic enhancement of activities has been described for the amphipathic cationic antimicrobial peptides magainin 2 and PGLa when tested in antimicrobial assays or in biophysical experiments using model membranes. In the presence of magainin 2, PGLa changes from an...
