A solid-state NMR study of the interaction of fish antifreeze proteins with phospholipid membranes

Garner, James; Inglis, Steven R; Hook, J; Separovic, Frances; Harding, Margaret

Description

Fish antifreeze proteins and glycoproteins (AF(G)Ps) prevent ice crystal growth and are able to protect mammalian cells and tissues from hypothermic damage in the sub-zero Polar oceans. This protective mechanism is not fully understood, and further data is required to explain how AF(G)Ps are able to stabilize lipid membranes as they pass through their phase transition temperatures. Solid-state NMR spectroscopy was used as a direct method to study the interaction of the 37-residue α-helical type...[Show more]
