The precise mode of the antimicrobial activity of Magainin (Mag)-an antimicrobial peptide (AMP)-is still unclear. In this study, the conformation of Mag was characterized in water, and in a methanol and lipid bilayer [palmitoyl-oleoylphosphatidylcholine (POPC)] using a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation technique. To describe the role conformation plays in(More)
A multi-component lattice Boltzmann scheme is used to investigate the dynamics of a wettability driven droplet within a microchannel. The driving force for the motion is created by a stepwise change in the wettability of the channel walls. Moreover, an analytical solution is developed for evaluation of the dynamics of the droplet inside the channel. The(More)
We investigate the time-dependent evolution of thin liquid films over inclined substrates using a multi-component lattice Boltzmann algorithm. Substrates with and without grooves are considered and the effects of the inclination angle on the dynamics and the coating of the substrates are studied. Our results indicate that the dynamics is enhanced and the(More)
