POPC/Cholesterol @ 310K. 0, 10, 40, 50 and 60 mol-% cholesterol. Model by Maciejewski and Rog

2018-05-24T00:23:41Z (GMT) by Javanainen, Matti Kulig, Waldemar

Input parameter files and parts of the resulting trajectories for a POPC bilayer simulation with varying amounts of cholesterol. The systems contain 0, 10, 40, 50 or 60 mol-% cholesterol and a total of 128 lipids (POPC+cholesterol). The force field is an extension to the OPLS-based force field by the same authors [1]. All simulations are conducted by Waldemar Kulig and the simulations with 0, 10 and 40 mol-% cholesterol have earlier been discussed in [2].



md_cholXX.tpr – XX mol-% cholesterol; run input file for Gromacs versions 4.6 and above. 

md_cholXX.xtc – The last 200 ns of a 400 ns long simulation (200 ns discarded from the beginning). XX mol-% cholesterol. Data saved every 100 ps.
