ResumenIn this work, we present a structural characterization of the putative fusion peptide E2(279–298) corresponding to the E2 envelope protein of the HGV/GBV-C virus by H-1 NMR, CD and MD studies performed in H2O/TFE and in lipid model membranes. The peptide is largely unstructured in water, whereas in H2O/TFE and in model membranes it adopts an helical structure (approximately 65–70%). The partitioning free energy ΔG ranges from -6 to -7.5 kcal mol-1. OCD measurements on peptide-containing hydrated and oriented lipid multilayers showed that the peptide adopts a predominantly surface orientation. The H-1 NMR data (observed NOEs, deuterium exchange rates, Hα chemical shift index and vicinal coupling constants) and the molecular dynamics calculations support the conclusions that the peptide adopts a stable helix in the C-terminal 9–18 residues slightly inserted into the lipid bilayer and a major mobility in the amino terminus of the sequence (1–8 residues).
