The above images were made in 1996 from theoretical models of hydrated lipid bilayers published in 1993[1]. Each image above represents every second phospholipid in one "row" in the model. The phospholipids are 1-palmitoyl 2-oleoyl phosphatidyl choline. These models were featured in a 1996 RasMol Movie Script, which was subsequently repeatedly adapted to more recent technologies, eventually JSmol: see Lipid Bilayers and the Gramicidin Channel. See also Gramicidin Channel in Lipid Bilayer.
