Experimental Verification for 1z64 » Pleurocidin
Calculated position is in agreement with burial of W2 in the membrane core (flurescence data) and with the overall orientation and membrane penetration depth of the peptide determined by solid-state NMR (Mason et al. 2006). 3D structure was determined in DPC micelles. Each micelle contains at least two pleurocidin molecules. The peptide forms ion channels in lipid bilayers.
