The influence of attractive protein-protein interactions on the organization of photosynthetic proteins within the thylakoid membrane was investigated. Protein-protein interactions were simulated using Monte Carlo techniques and the influence of different interaction energies was examined. It was found that weak interactions led to protein clusters whereas strong interactions led to ramified chains. An optimum curve for the relationship between interaction energy and the number of contact sites… CONTINUE READING
