    Bovine liver cytochrome b (cyt b), with heme bound noncovalently, has been converted into a cyt c-like protein (cyt b N57C) by constructing a thioether linkage between the heme and the engineered cysteine residue. With no X-ray or NMR structure available, we herein performed a molecular modeling...

    We investigate the thermal denaturation of DNA hairpins using molecular dynamics simulations of a simple model describing the molecule at a scale of a nucleotide. The model allows us to analyze the different interacting features that determine how an hairpin opens, such as the role of the loop...
