Melittin is a hemolytic toxin peptide of the European bee Apis mellifera. It is demonstrated that the membrane bound melittin molecules present a certain structure of amphipathic helix (1~22 residues) but the orientation of the helical structure of melittin on phospholipid membranes is still controversial. Combining high performance liquid.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
