Lipids in biological membranes generally adopt bilayer structures. However, incorporation of peptides may induce alterations in such structures. We have studied the influence of tryptophan, leucine, Trp-Leu, luteinizing hormone releasing hormone and renin inhibitor peptide on lipid organisation in liposomes. It has been observed that the effect is specific to the peptide molecule as-a whole and does not have direct correlation to the constituent amino acids or the conformation of the molecule.
