    Abstract

    Molecular dynamics simulations of glycolipid bilayers consisting of 1,2-di-O-palmitoyl-3-O-ß-D-glucosyl-sn-glycerol were performed using five different force field parameterizations. Comparing the results with experimental data revealed that only the all-atom model correctly reproduces both the phase behavior and the surface area per lipid. Only one of the united atom models studied reproduces the correct phase behavior.
