The effects of the C-terminal amidation of mastoparans on their biological actions and interactions with membrane-mimetic systems
(Biochimica Et Biophysica Acta-biomembranes, 2014-10-01) [Artigo]
Polycationic peptides may present their C-termini in either amidated or acidic form; however, the effects of these conformations on the mechanisms of interaction with the membranes in general were not properly investigated ...
Protonectin (1-6): A novel chemotactic peptide from the venom of the social wasp Agelaia pallipes pallipes
(Toxicon, 2010-11-01) [Artigo]
Peptides constitute the largest group of Hymenoptera venom toxins; some of them interact with GPCR, being involved with the activation of different types of leukocytes, smooth muscle contraction and neurotoxicity. Most of ...
Effect of the aspartic acid D2 on the affinity of Polybia-MP1 to anionic lipid vesicles
(European Biophysics Journal With Biophysics Letters, 2014-05-01) [Artigo]
Polybia-MP1 (IDWKKLLDAAKQIL-NH2), a helical peptide extracted from the venom of a Brazilian wasp, has broad-spectrum antimicrobial activities without being hemolytic or cytotoxic. This peptide has also displayed anticancer ...
