Simulation of amyloid aggregation on the surface of a lipid vesicle with a coarse-grained model (raw)

The simulations shows the formation of an ordered (fibrillar) aggregate whose nucleation is aided by the presence of a lipid vesicle. The lipid particles are shown in gray while the peptide monomers are shown in color. The periodic box used in the simulations is highlighted as well. The motion of the system in the box can make it hard to follow the assembly process, and a movie using aligned images is provided on this website as well. Caption otherwise missing.
