The lipid bilayer component of biological membranes is important for the distribution, organization, and function of bilayer-spanning proteins. This regulation is due to both specific lipid-protein interactions and general bilayer-protein interactions, which modulate the energetics and kinetics of protein conformational transitions, as well as the protein distribution between different membrane compartments. The bilayer regulation of membrane protein function arises from the hydrophobic… Expand
Protein–Lipid Interactions in Biological Membranes
The canonical Singer–Nicolson model of lipid bilayers with embedded proteins emphasize the passive barrier properties of the bilayer component. It is, however, becoming increasingly clear that theExpand
Lipid bilayer regulation of membrane protein function: gramicidin channels as molecular force probes
TLDR
An introduction to the regulation of membrane protein function by the bilayer physical properties is provided and the use of gramicidin channels as molecular force probes for studying this mechanism is described, with a unique ability to discriminate between consequences of changes in monolayer curvature and bilayer elastic moduli. Expand
Bilayer-thickness-mediated interactions between integral membrane proteins.
TLDR
The work presented here puts into place an analytic and numerical framework which allows calculation of bilayer-mediated elastic interactions between integral membrane proteins for the complicated protein shapes suggested by structural biology and at the small protein separations most relevant for the crowded membrane environments provided by living cells. Expand
Curvature forces in membrane lipid-protein interactions.
TLDR
An increased awareness of curvature forces suggests that research will accelerate as structural biology becomes more closely entwined with the physical chemistry of lipids in explaining membrane structure and function. Expand
Curvature Forces in Membrane Lipid − Protein Interactions
Membrane biochemists are becoming increasingly aware of the role of lipid−protein interactions in diverse cellular functions. This review describes how conformational changes in membrane proteins,Expand
Regulation of membrane proteins through local heterogeneity in lipid bilayer thickness.
TLDR
It is suggested that protein-induced lipid bilayer thickness deformations endow proteins in cell membranes with diverse and controlled mechanical environments that, in turn, allow targeted regulation of membrane proteins. Expand
Amphiphile regulation of ion channel function by changes in the bilayer spring constant.
TLDR
The use of gramicidin A channels as molecular force probes provides a tool for quantitative, predictive studies of bilayer-mediated regulation of membrane protein function by amphiphiles. Expand
Sensing membrane thickness: Lessons learned from cold stress.
TLDR
Recent insights into the molecular basis of thermosensing via changes in membrane thickness are reviewed and examples in which the hydrophobic matching can be demonstrated using reconstituted membrane systems are considered. Expand
Soft Matter in Lipid-Protein Interactions.
TLDR
This review considers hydrophobic matching of the intramembranous proteolipid boundary to explain the conformational changes and oligomeric states of proteins within the bilayer. Expand
Membrane Lipid-Protein Interactions

Regulation of Sodium Channel Function by Bilayer Elasticity
TLDR
Whether voltage-dependent skeletal-muscle sodium channels, expressed in HEK293 cells, are regulated by bilayer elasticity, as monitored using gramicidin A (gA) channels is examined, providing strong support for the notion that bilayer–protein hydrophobic coupling allows the bilayers elastic properties to regulate membrane protein function.

TLDR
The present review summarizes studies which have demonstrated that the hydrophobic interactions between a membrane protein and the host lipid bilayer provide an energetic coupling, whereby protein function can be regulated by the bilayer elasticity. Expand
Lipid bilayer electrostatic energy, curvature stress, and assembly of gramicidin channels.
TLDR
It is shown that alterations in curvature stress, due to alterations in the electrostatic energy of dioleoylphosphatidylserine bilayers, modulate the structurally well-defined gramicidin A monomer <--> dimer reaction and provides further evidence for the importance of mechanical interactions between a bilayer and its imbedded proteins for protein structure and function. Expand
Energetics of inclusion-induced bilayer deformations.
TLDR
This work analyzes the free energy cost associated with a hydrophobic mismatch using a (liquid-crystal) elastic model of bilayer deformations and shows that, for a protein embedded in a membrane with an initial hydrophilic mismatch of only 1 A, an increase in hydrophobia to 1.3 A can increase the Boltzmann factor 10-fold due to the elastic properties of the bilayer.

TLDR
It is concluded that hydrophobic mismatch can strongly affect protein and lipid organization, but that the precise consequences depend on the individual properties of the proteins and lipids. Expand
Spring constants for channel-induced lipid bilayer deformations. Estimates using gramicidin channels.
TLDR
Experimental studies on the relation between bilayer thickness and gramicidin channel duration show the spring constant in nominally hydrocarbon-free bilayers agrees well with estimates based on a continuum analysis of inclusion-induced bilayer deformations using independently measured material constants.

A molecular model for lipid-protein interaction in membranes: the role of hydrophobic mismatch.
TLDR
Qualitative interpretations of the interaction free energy between a hydrophobic, transmembrane, protein and the surrounding lipid environment are supported by detailed numerical calculations of the various contributions to the interactionfree energy, and of chain conformational properties. Expand

TLDR
Theoretical and experimental studies show that the binding of either cytoplasmic proteins or extracellular peptides to membranes is regulated by the presence of charged lipids and that the sorting of transmembrane proteins into or out of membrane microdomains (rafts) depends on several factors, including bilayer material properties governed by the existence of cholesterol. Expand
How lipids affect the activities of integral membrane proteins.
TLDR
The role of non-annular, or 'co-factor' lipids, tightly bound to membrane proteins, is described, as well as the effects of charged lipids on ion concentrations close to the surface of the bilayer. Expand
