Modulation of the translocation of peptides through nanopores by the application of an AC electric field

Author affiliations

Abstract

The interaction of two peptides with the α-hemolysin pore was studied in the presence of a MHz AC field. For an α-helical peptide the proportion of bumping events increased with increasing AC field whereas for a linear peptide with no dipole moment only small changes in the event profiles were observed.
