Atom-scale molecular interactions in lipid raft mixtures.


We review the relationship between molecular interactions and the properties of lipid environments. A specific focus is given on bilayers which contain sphingomyelin (SM) and sterols due to their essential role for the formation of lipid rafts. The discussion is based on recent atom-scale molecular dynamics simulations, complemented by extensive comparison… (More)
