Melittin major precursor (anion selective).  Its bacteriocidal activity against Listeria and its cytotoxicity to animal cells have been studied (Wu et al. 2016). In zwitterionic membranes, melittin forms transmembrane toroidal homomeric pores supported by four to eight peptides. Its ability to diffuse freely in a 1,2-dimyristoyl-SN-glycero-3-phosphocholine membrane leads to dynamic pores of vaious diameters with varying molecularity containing from 4 to peptides/channel (Pino-Angeles and Lazaridis 2018).
