Lipid bilayer deformation and the free energy of interaction of a Kv channel gating-modifier toxin.
A number of membrane proteins act via binding at the water/lipid bilayer interface. An important example of such proteins is provided by the gating-modifier toxins that act on voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels. They are thought to partition to the headgroup region of lipid bilayers, and so provide a good system for probing the nature of interactions of a protein with the water/bilayer interface. We used coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to compute the one-dimensional potential...Expand abstract
