Highly pure synthetic Melittin. Melittin is a major constituent of the bee venom of Apis mellifera. The N-terminal part of Melittin is hydrophobic and the C-terminal part is hydrophilic. Melittin accumulates in cell membrane which leads to various effects. It can be used to study lipid-protein interactions in membranes. Melittin has demonstrated interesting properties in pre-clinical studies as antimicrobial substance, as drug against rheumatoid arthritis, arteriosclerosis, cancer or as drug delivery system.
