Abstract

A synthetic peptide, Td3717, showed selective affinity for anionic phospholipids, phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylglycerol, and formed an amphiphilic α-helical structure. This specificity originated not only from electrostatic interactions, but also from the primary amino acid sequence and overall structure of the peptide.
