Sets of complementary lipidated coiled-coil forming peptides that fuse membrane fusion have been designed. The influence of the coiled-coil motif on the rate of liposome fusion was studied, by varying the number of heptad repeats. We found that an increased coiled-coil stability of complementary peptides translates into increased rates of membrane fusion of liposomes.
