Monotopic proteins make up a class of membrane proteins that bind tightly to, but do not span, cell membranes. We examine and compare how two monotopic proteins, monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), interact with a phospholipid bilayer using molecular dynamics simulations. Both enzymes form between three and seven hydrogen bonds with the bilayer in our simulations with basic side chains accounting for the majority of these interactions. By analyzing lipid order parameters...Expand abstract
