Collective behavior of proteins on biomembranes is usually studied within the spontaneous curvature model. Here we consider an alternative phenomenological approach, which accounts consistently for partial ordering of proteins as well as the anchoring forces exerted on a membrane by layer of proteins. We show analytically that such anisotropic interactions… CONTINUE READING
