According to the theoretical prediction of IEP of E-5-K (consistent with [26, 35]), this peptide should adopt a slightly positive charge at the used pH ca. 5.6; however, the penetration results (Figure 8) indicate a slight negative charge of E-5-K, under the experimental conditions.
Derived according to the secondary structure algorithm .
LPC denotes L-α-lysophosphatidylcholine, and SDS denotes sodium dodecyl sulphate.
The value is predicted using the “Peptide Property Calculator” of CS Bio Co. software available at http://pepcalc.com/ppc.php (used also in ).
