Effects of anesthetics on the structure of a phospholipid bilayer: molecular dynamics investigation of halothane in the hydrated liquid crystal phase of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine.
We report the results of constant temperature and pressure molecular dynamics calculations carried out on the liquid crystal (Lalpha) phase of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine with a mole fraction ofExpand

Distribution of halothane in a dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine bilayer from molecular dynamics calculations.
We report a 2-ns constant pressure molecular dynamics simulation of halothane, at a mol fraction of 50%, in the hydrated liquid crystal bilayer phase of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine. HalothaneExpand

A designed four-alpha-helix bundle that binds the volatile general anesthetic halothane with high affinity.
The structural features of volatile anesthetic binding sites on proteins are being examined with the use of a defined model system consisting of a four-alpha-helix bundle scaffold with a hydrophobicExpand

Membrane structural perturbations caused by anesthetics and nonimmobilizers: a molecular dynamics investigation.
The structural perturbations of the fully hydrated dimyristoyl-phosphatidylcholine bilayer induced by the presence of hexafluoroethane C(2F6), a "nonimmobilizer," have been examined by molecularExpand

Molecular dynamics simulation of a synthetic four‐α‐helix bundle that binds the anesthetic halothane
The structural features of binding sites for volatile anesthetics are examined by performing a molecular dynamics simulation study of the synthetic four‐α‐helix bundles (Aα2)2, which are formed byExpand

Lipomas of the mesencephalic tectum and rostral pons associated with sleep apnea syndrome.
Two patients with mixed sleep apnea and autopsy-documented lipomas of the mesencephalic tectum and rostral pons are presented. Microscopically, the locus ceruleus was unilaterally invaded by a tumorExpand

Towards an Understanding of How General Anesthetics Alter Central Nervous System Protein Function
C linical general anesthesia was introduced in 1856 by William Morton at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. How inhaled anesthetics work at the molecular level remains poorly understood,Expand
