Sorry, no etymologies found.
Using this acellular assay, the authors confirmed previous data from Meeusen et al. that suggested that, for mitochondria to be fusogenic in vitro, they need energy and inner membrane potential, whereas the presence of cytosol is dispensable.
Moreover, it has been found a good correlation between the ability of different peptides to affect the lamellar to hexagonal phase transition (L α→HII) of synthetic membranes with membrane perturbation and / or fusogenic activity
Fusion peptides show generally a high membrane-perturbing and fusogenic activity, i.e., mixing membrane lipids and aqueous contents of the vesicles (low leakage and high fusion values).
Stan RV, Dowdy SF (2004) Transducible TAT-HA fusogenic peptide enhances escape of TAT-fusion proteins after lipid raft macropinocytosis.
However, this basic fusogenic protein complex may be further specialized to suit the requirements for different neurotransmitter systems, as exemplified by neurons and neuroendocrine cells.
+ telomeres represent an intermediate configuration between the fully capped and uncapped (fusogenic) states.
As aggregation occurs, there is a significant fusogenic activity promoted by rBPI Figure 6).
