Description :
The data are a series of lipid model membranes designed for the use in all-atoms Molecular dynamics simulations. They are lipid membranes modelling the composition of the lipid matrix of the plasma membrane of eukaryotes with a 5-component model involving phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), sphingomyelin (SM), and cholesterol (CHOL). For keeping the system small enough, only one type of fatty acid was considered: the oleyl. The models either preserve the asymmetric composition of the membrane of normal eukaryotes or they induce a scrambling mimicking the lipid composition of plasma membrane of both cancer or apoptotic cells by inducing an overexposure of PS and PE in the extracellular leaflet. Each of these two models was equilibrated for 9 curvature ranging from -0.2 to +0.2 nm^(-1) resulting in 18 models equilibrated for 500 ns each. The use of the so-called Slipids force fields - which is known to reproduce accurately the membrane properties - was made. The simulations were carried out with a 1 fs time step, in the NpT ensemble, using the Berendsen pressure coupling and the velocity rescale thermostat, and running on the Gromacs package v 2016.1.
