Capturing Spontaneous Partitioning of Peripheral Proteins Using a Biphasic Membrane-Mimetic Model

Abstract

Membrane binding of peripheral proteins, mediated by specialized anchoring domains, is a crucial step for their biological function. Computational studies of membrane insertion, however, have proven challenging and largely inaccessible, due to the time scales required for the complete description of the process, mainly caused by the slow diffusion of the… (More)
