Structural changes upon binding to the membrane of a COOH-terminal channel-forming thermolytic fragment of colicin E1 have been studied by means of a variety of spectroscopic techniques. Circular dichroism measurements show that the thermolytic fragment predominantly takes a helical structure in aqueous and detergent solutions. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic measurements indicate that the content of the beta-structure is significantly increased when the thermolytic fragment is bound to vesicles. On the basis of the result of tryptophan fluorescence measurements, we have concluded that each of the three tryptophan residues of the thermolytic fragment exists in different environments, i.e. one is buried in the lipid bilayer, one exists on the cis side of the vesicles, and one exists near the surface of the lipid bilayer. The Fourier transform infrared and fluorescence data have been used along with the crystal structure of colicin A, which is highly homologous to colicin E1 in structure and function, to propose a model of the thermolytic fragment bound to the lipid vesicles.
