Monte Carlo simulations were used to describe the interaction of peripheral and integral proteins with lipids in terms of heat capacity profiles and protein distribution. The simulations were based on a two-state model for the lipid, representing the lipid state as being either gel or fluid. The interaction between neighboring lipids has been taken into account through an unlike nearest neighbor free energy term delta omega, which is a measure of the cooperativity of the lipid transition.
