Our understanding of the cellular export of a-factor and its interaction with the receptor do not yet allow for a description of the phenomena on a molecular level. Synthesis of a-factor analogs and biophysical studies of the lipopeptides in the presence of artificial membranes provide insights which can be analyzed with respect to the biological potency of the molecules. It is through the study of the interaction of the lipopeptides with membranes at varying levels of complexity that we will be able to develop a molecular description of the biological processes.
