Barrier-free paths of directed protein motion in the erythrocyte plasma membrane.

Abstract

A model is presented for the steric interaction between a plasma membrane protein and the membrane cytoskeleton in the human erythrocyte. The cytoskeleton is treated as a network of polymer chains attached to a flat bilayer, and the membrane protein is a hemisphere of effective radius R(e) with center on the bilayer edge. The simulation is used to… (More)
