Experimental and computational studies have indicated that hydrophobicity plays a key role in driving the insertion of transmembrane alpha-helices into lipid bilayers. Molecular dynamics simulations allow exploration of the nature of the interactions of transmembrane alpha-helices with their lipid bilayer environment. In particular, coarse-grained simulations have considerable potential for studying many aspects of membrane proteins, ranging from their self-assembly to the relation between th...Expand abstract
