Abstract
Molecular dynamics simulations of model lipid monolayers of 2,3-diacyl-D-glycerolipids [using the nomenclature of M. Sundaralingam, Ann. N.Y. Acad. Sci. U.S.A., 195, 324-355 (1972)], that contained stearoyl in the position 3 and oleoyl, linoleoyl or linolenoyl in the position 2, have been carried out. One nanosecond simulations were performed at T equals 295 K. C-C and C-H bond order parameter profiles and the bond orientation distributions about the monolayers normals have been calculated. The relation of the distributions to the order parameters was analyzed in terms of maxima and widths of the distributions. The cis double bond order parameter is found to be more high than those of adjacent single C-C bonds. The bond orientation distribution function widths depend on both the segment location in the chain and the segment chemical structure. The widths of the two distributions of C-H bonds of the cis double bond segment in linoleoyl and linolenoyl molecules are much smaller than that obtained for CH2 group located between the double bonds.
