In its helical state GALA can insert into and disintegrate lipid membranes. This effect has generated much interest in GALA as a candidate for pH triggered, targeted drug delivery. GALA also serves as a well-defined model system to understand cell penetration mechanisms and protein folding triggered by external stimuli. Structural transitions of GALA in solution have been studied extensively. However, cell penetration is an interfacial effect and potential biomedical applications of GALA would involve a variety of surfaces, e.g., nanoparticles, lipid membranes, tubing, and liquid-gas interfaces. Despite the apparent importance of interfaces in the functioning of GALA, the effect of surfaces on the reversible folding of GALA has not yet been studied. Here, we use sum frequency generation vibrational spectroscopy (SFG) to probe the structural response of GALA at the air-water interface and IR spectroscopy to follow GALA folding in bulk solution. We combine the SFG data with molecular dynamics simulations to obtain a molecular-level picture of the interaction of GALA with the air-water interface. Surprisingly, while the fully reversible structural transition was observed in solution, at the water-air interface, a large fraction of the GALA population remained helical at high pH. This “stickiness” of the air-water interface can be explained by the stabilizing interactions of hydrophobic leucine and alanine side chains with the water surface.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Roeters, Steven J.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-02-11T09:38:36Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Schach, Denise</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Landfester, Katharina</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Woutersen, Sander</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/29825"/> <dc:contributor>Globisch, Christoph</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Weiss, Clemens K.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Weidner, Tobias</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Roeters, Steven J.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bonn, Mischa</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Woutersen, Sander</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Weidner, Tobias</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Fuchs, Adrian</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dc:creator>Peter-Tittelbach, Christine</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/29825/5/Schach_261984.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Backus, Ellen H.
