Motivation and open questions One example of a collective phenomena in membranes is the fusion of two apposing lipid bilayers.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
One way to accomplish this is for a fusion protein, embedded in one of the membranes, to be is inserted into the apposing membrane, followed by a conformational change of the protein.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
The second step consists of the fusion event itself in which the topology changes from two apposing bilayer of two vesicles to a fusion pore in a now-single vesicle.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
Increasing the tension of the apposed membranes results in an increased fusion rate [ 384].
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
Some experiments report on the transient mixing of lipids between the cis, or most closely apposed, leaf and the trans, or farther leaf, of the other membrane [ 376, 375].
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
In their model the proper fusion process starts with the formation of a stalk (see Fig. 6), a rotationally symmetric connection between the two apposing cis monolayers.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
In Fig. 9 we present time traces of the areal fraction of holes in an isolated tense bilayer and in the two apposed bilayer system.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
In the two apposed bilayer system, however, larger holes form more readily and their occurrence is correlated with the fusion event.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
The simulation studies of fusion differ both in the geometry of the initial state – two apposed planar bilayers, or a planar bilayer in contact with a vesicle or two small vesicles – as well as in the representation of the amphiphiles and the solvent.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
Panel (a) presents a snapshot of the initial stalk between the two apposed vesicles.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
Interestingly, these calculations also observe the formation of stalks between two apposed vesicles and the formation of holes in the vicinity of stalks in both bilayers (stalk-hole mechanism 2).
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
The model also afforded the possibility of double-tailed lipids bridging between the cis-layers of the two apposed vesicles.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
If the tension is below some threshold, the two apposed membranes do not fuse but rather adhere on the time scale of the simulations.
