I have developed a computer program that can simulate fatty acid transport
between two membranes through an aqueous space. The involvement of cytoplasmic
fatty acid binding protein in this process is modeled under a variety of
The model is described in: Vork et al, Prostaglandins,
Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids 57, 11-16, 1997
The program is now available to anyone who is interested in this process.
You can download it from the simtel archive, which is mirrored at many places
around the world. The location is simtel/msdos/biology/fa_trans.zip.
Alternatively, you can download it from www.page4life.nl/mvork/fatrans.htm
Please contact me if you have any suggestions for improvement.
