Computer Simulation of a DPPC Phospholipid Bilayer: Structural Changes as a Function of Molecular Surface Area

Abstract

A series of molecular dynamics computer simulations have been carried out on fully hydrated liquid crystalline dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) bilayers at constant surface areas corresponding to 59.3, 62.9, 65.5, or 68.1 Å2/lipid, the range of values suggested by different experiments in different laboratories. Simulated quantities are compared with… (More)
