We present the results of a 10-ns molecular dynamics simulation of a dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine/water system. The main emphasis of the present study is on the investigation of the stability over a long time and the dynamic properties of the water/membrane system. The motion of the lipid molecules is characterized by the center of mass movement and the displacement of individual atom groups. Because of the slow movement of the headgroup atoms, their contributions to the dipole potential vary… CONTINUE READING
