Abstract

This thesis addresses the interplay between two classes of membrane active peptides and membranes, namely the antimicrobial peptides Magainin 2, BP100, MSI-78, and MSI-103 and the amphipathic peptide Pex11-Amph, by using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Understanding the interplay of peptides with membrane lipids is important to provide fundamental insight into many biological processes.
