"The interaction with phospholipid bilayers of two synthetic peptides with sequences corresponding to a segment next to the native N-terminus and an internal region of the E2 structural hepatitis G virus (HGV/GBV-C) protein [E2(7-26) and E2(279-298), respectively] has been characterized. Both peptides are water soluble but associate spontaneously with bilayers, showing higher affinity for anionic than zwitterionic membranes," scientists in Spain report.
"However, whereas the E2(7-26) peptide is hardly transferred at all from water to the membrane interface, the E2(279-298) peptide is...
