We have made the molecular dynamics (MD) simulations for the cluster of cholesterols localized near the transmembrane protein at the physiological temperature T = 309.75 K. We have observed that the cholesterol molecules form a lodgment on the surface of protein. Next we have studied the influence of carbon nanotube on the several physical quantities of cholesterol molecules among those: radial distribution function, the mean square displacement, diffusion coefficient, linear and angular velocity autocorrelation function.
