Now available from the Melo lab: PIP lipids in all sorts and sizes, compatible with Martini 3.
For protein-lipid afficionados: The Tieleman group has developed a new webserver coined ProLint, a user-friendly framework for the automated analysis and interactive visualization of Protein-Lipid interactions, supporting the Martini forcefield. The webportal can be accessed at https://www.prolint.ca/, and details are described in this paper.
Complex coacervate formation with the latest Martini 3 model - now published in Chemical Science by our PhD student Maria Tsanai: pubs.rsc.org/en/content/artWe reproduce the salt-dependent coacervation of a system of oppositely charged biopolymers, and simulate the partitioning of ssRNA molecules between the coacervate and supernatant phases. This study opens the way to simulate biomolecular condensates and other liquid-liquid phase separation driven processes at near-atomic resolution.
Our perspective paper on the booming application of Martini in the field of materials science is now published in Advanced Materials:

Interested in protein gating ?
FInd our paper by Nemchinova et al. on the asymmetric gating mechanism of CorA, a divalent ion transporter, now online in JCIM.
Featuring Martini 3.0 with Gõ-potentials to describe the protein !
