The Influence of Graphene Sheet on the Dynamics of Cholesterol Molecules in the Lodgment Located near a Transmembrane Protein – MD Study
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations have been made for a cluster of cholesterols localized near the transmembrane protein at the physiological temperature of 310 K. It was observed that the cholesterol molecules form a lodgment on the surface of protein. Additional studies were made of the influence of graphene sheet on several physical observables of cholesterol molecules including: the radial distribution function, the mean square displacement, diffusion coefficient and the linear and angular velocity autocorrelation functions.
