The pair distribution functions have been measured from freeze-fracture pictures of bacteriorhodopsin and rhodopsin recombinants with diacyl phosphatidylcholines (PC) of various hydrocarbon chain lengths. Pictures were used of samples that had been frozen from above the phase transition temperature of the lipid. Measured functions were compared with those calculated from two model interparticle potential energy functions, (a) a hard-disk repulsion only, and (b) a hard-disk repulsion plus… CONTINUE READING
