Peptide Nanovesicles Formed by the Self-Assembly of Branched Amphiphilic Peptides

Figure 2

A coarse-grained simulation of bis(h5)-K-K4 bilayer self-assembly.

All lysine residues are plotted in green ball-and-stick representations, the aromatic sidechains of phenylalanine residues in blue sticks, and all other residues in cyan. The snapshots were taken at 0 ns, 2 ns, 4 ns, 10 ns and 40 ns, respectively. A hypothetical peptide vesicle model is shown to the right.
