Cholesterol is abundant in the plasma membranes of animal cells and is known to regulate a variety of membrane properties. Despite decades of research, the transmembrane distribution of cholesterol is still a matter of debate. Here we consider this outstanding issue through atomistic simulations of asymmetric lipid membranes, whose composition is largely(More)
NMR relaxation experiments are widely used to investigate the local orientation mobility in dendrimers. In particular, the NMR method allows one to measure the spin-lattice relaxation rate, 1/T1, which is connected with the orientational autocorrelation function (ACF) of NMR active groups. We calculate the temperature (Θ) and frequency (ω) dependences of(More)
Due to the great importance for many industrial applications it is crucial from the point of view of theoretical description to reproduce thermal properties of thermoplastic polyimides as accurate as possible in order to establish "chemical structure-physical properties" relationships of new materials. In this paper we employ differential scanning(More)
Poly-L-lysine (PLL) dendrimers are promising systems for biomedical applications due to their biocompatibility. These dendrimers have a specific topology: two spacers of different lengths come out of each branching point and thus the branching is asymmetric. Because of this asymmetry terminal groups are located at branches of different lengths, unlike(More)
