Cell membrane fluidity: molecular modeling of particle aggregations seen in electron microscopy.

PMID:  971438     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The first simulation of the fluid mosaic model is reported. Intra-membrane particles, initially "placed" randomly in a membrane with fluid properties, are allowed to diffuse in the plane of the membrane and to interact with one another, in a model using molecular parameters. The resulting particle aggregates are very similar to those observed in freeze-fracture electron microscopy.
