Headgroup mediated water insertion into the DPPC bilayer: a molecular dynamics study.

Abstract

Molecular dynamics simulation was performed on the 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-phosphocholine (DPPC) bilayer-water system using the GROMOS96 53a6 united atom force field. The transferability of force field was tested by reproducing the area per lipid within 3% accuracy from the experimental value. The simulation shows that water can penetrate much deeper inside the… (More)
