Evaluation of degrees of order of spatial distribution of rhodopsin (Rh) dimers.
Averages of 〈S(t)〉t over ten simulations, 〈S(t)〉, for each model with a different Rh dimer as indicated. Error bars indicate standard deviations. The “Initial” values were obtained for ten initial conditions, for which the configurations of H1/H8 dimers and lipids were random. The 〈S(t)〉t for each model of dimer indicates the time for the average degree of row structure by the Rh-dimers, S(t), ranging between 180 and 200 μs.
