Abstract

Abstract Gramicidin A, in addition to its channel-inducing properties, also modulates the phase behaviour of lipid membranes and may play a role in the regulation of gene expression. These three distinct functions may all result from the arrangement of four tryptophan residues at the C-terminal end of the molecule.
