- ... Synthetic model peptides have proven useful for examining fundamental peptide–lipid interactions. A frequently employed peptide design consists of a hydrophobic core of Leu-Ala residues with polar or aromatic amino acids flanking each side at the interfacial positions, which serve to “anchor” a specific transmembrane orientation. For example, WALP family peptides (acetyl-GWW(LA)ₙLWWA-[ethanol]amid ...
