From: Langevin dynamics simulations of charged model phosphatidylinositol lipids in the presence of diffusion barriers: toward an atomic level understanding of corralling of PIP2 by protein fences in biological membranes

Figure 6

Potential maps of the rigid - protein fences. The potential maps of the rigid-protein fences at four depths (Zmin) of protein binding to the lipid membrane, Zmin = 0, -5, -10, and -15 Å (from left to right): (a) Actin, (b) Human septin, and (c) Yeast septin. (d) Comparison of the steric potential (U CORE) and the steric plus electrostatic potential (U CORE + qϕPHIX) for human septin with Zmin = -9 Å and yeast septin with Zmin = -12 Å.
