Abstract:
The crystallization of membrane proteins from solution is sensitive to the role of initial conditions. In order to understand this dependence, we report preliminary results for two models for membrane proteins, each with short range attractive interactions. We determine the fluid-fluid coexistence curve for a square well attractive model in two dimensions at short attractive interaction range ¸ = 1:1 3/, where 3/4 is the hard core diameter. We also extend an earlier study of a two dimensional modified Lennard-Jones model.
