Hydrophobic Compounds Reshape Membrane Domains

Figure 3

Aliphatic compounds act as linactants.

Localization of DLiPC lipids and aliphatic solutes (averaged over the last 100 ns of simulation at low solute concentration, 295 K) expressed as relative density and normalized solute density . Right panels: snapshots from the same simulations, side view. Only one particle per lipid is shown; phosphate group is colored in red for DLiPC and in blue for DPPC, cholesterol hydroxyl group is in yellow, solutes in gray.
