Cover Picture: Multistep Binding of Divalent Cations to Phospholipid Bilayers: A Molecular Dynamics Study (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 8/2004)

43_08/2004Membrane–cation interactions can greatly affect the properties of biological membranes. In their Communication on page 1021 ff. H. Grubmüller and R. A. Böckmann describe the simulation of the binding of sodium and calcium ions to neutral, zwitterionic lipid membranes. The cover picture shows a snapshot from the molecular dynamics simulation of a membrane with Ca2+ ions.
