    • Charged residues are involved in membrane fusion mediated by a hydrophilic peptide located in vesicular stomatitis virus G protein 

      Carneiro, Fabiana A.; Vandenbussche, Guy; Juliano, Maria A.; Juliano, Luiz; Ruysschaert, Jean-Marie; Da Poian, Andrea T. (Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2006-09-01)
      Membrane fusion is an essential step of the internalization process of the enveloped animal viruses. Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) infection is mediated by virus spike glycoprotein G, which induces membrane fusion at ...

    • Interaction between dengue virus fusion peptide and lipid bilayers depends on peptide clustering 

      Stauffer, Fausto; Melo, Manuel Nuno; Carneiro, Fabiana A.; Sousa, Francisco J. R.; Juliano, Maria A. [UNIFESP]; Juliano, Luiz [UNIFESP]; Mohana-Borges, Ronaldo; Da Poian, Andrea T.; Castanho, Miguel A. R. B. (Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2008-01-01)
      Dengue fever is one of the most widespread tropical diseases in the world. the disease is caused by a virus member of the Flaviviridae family, a group of enveloped positive sense single-stranded RNA viruses. Dengue virus ...

    • A minor beta-structured conformation is the active state of a fusion peptide of vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein 

      Sarzedas, Carolina G.; Lima, Carla S.; Juliano, Maria A. [UNIFESP]; Juliano, Luiz [UNIFESP]; Valente, Ana Paula; Da Poian, Andrea T.; Almeida, Fabio C. L. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008-04-01)
      Entry of enveloped animal viruses into their host cells always depends on a step of membrane fusion triggered by conformational changes in viral envelope glycoproteins. Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) infection is mediated ...

    • Probing the interaction between vesicular stomatitis virus and phosphatidylserine 

      Carneiro, F. A.; Lapido-Loureiro, P. A.; Cordo, S. M.; Stauffer, F.; Weissmuller, G.; Bianconi, M. L.; Juliano, M. A.; Juliano, L.; Bisch, P. M.; Poian, ATD (Springer, 2006-01-01)
      The entry of enveloped animal viruses into their host cells always depends on membrane fusion triggered by conformational changes in viral envelope glycoproteins. Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) infection is mediated by ...
