Abstract

<p>Lipid tail protrusion probability is plotted as a function of distance from the nearest fusion peptide, with values averaged in 1-Å bins. Tails within 5 Å of the fusion peptides have a significantly greater probability of protrusion than those >20 Å away (p<0.02, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test).</p
