How to perform REMD of a system a membrane-protein system?

Hello NAMD community,

I wish to perform an all-atom REMD simulation of a membrane-protein system
(a 40-residue peptide). My membrane is a bilayer consisted of POPG and POPE
lipids and I want to explore temperatures above 300K (above their
gel-liquid transition temperature).
Does any of you have any suggestion/advice on how to treat the lipids?
Should I constrain them? Is there a maximum temperature that I should heat
my system?

Thank you in advance,
