Abstract: Molecular dynamics simulations of membrane proteins have become a popular tool for studying their dynamic features, which are not easily accessible by experiments. Whether the force fields developed for globular proteins are adequate this purpose is an important question that is often glossed over. Here we determine the permeation properties of potassium ions in the gramicidin A channel in a lipid bilayer from free energy simulations, and compare the results to experimental data. In particular, we check the de…
