Few structures of membrane proteins are known and their relationships with the membrane are unclear. In a previous report, 20 X-ray structures of transmembrane proteins were analyzed in silico for their orientation in a 36A-thick membrane [J. Mol. Graph. Model. 20 (2001) 235]. In this paper, we use the same approach to analyze how the insertion of the X-ray structures varies with the bilayer thickness. The protein structures are kept constant and, at each membrane thickness, the protein is… CONTINUE READING
