Acyl transfer from phosphocholine lipids to melittin.

Pridmore, Catherine J. and Mosely, Jackie, A. and Rodger, Alison and Sanderson, John M. (2011) 'Acyl transfer from phosphocholine lipids to melittin.', Chemical communications., 47 (5). pp. 1422-1424.


Transfer of fatty acyl groups from membrane phospholipids to melittin, a commonly studied membrane-active peptide, has been observed to occur over extended time periods. Transfer can be detected after 1–2 days and selectively targets amino groups at the N-terminal end of the peptide.
