Structural, compositional, and material (elastic) properties of lipid bilayers exert strong influences on the interactions of water-soluble proteins and peptides with membranes, the distribution of transmembrane proteins in the plane of the membrane, and the function of specific membrane channels. Theoretical and experimental studies show that the binding… CONTINUE READING
