In this paper the geometrical properties of gel and fluid clusters of equimolar dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine/distearoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC/DSPC) lipid bilayers are calculated by using an Ising-type model (Sugar, I. P., T. E. Thompson, and R. L. Biltonen. 1999. Biophys. J. 76:2099–2110). The model is able to predict the following properties in agreement with the respective experimental data:...
