    Computer generated trajectories can, in principle, reveal the folding pathways of a protein at atomic resolution and possibly suggest general and simple rules for predicting the folded structure of a given sequence. While such reversible folding trajectories can only be determined ab initio...

    We perform all-atom computer simulations on nearly one hundred 6-, 8-, 10-, and 12-mer peptide fragments of protein G, and look for stable states. We simulated by replica-exchange molecular dynamics using Amber7 with the parm96 force-field and a GB/SA (generalized-Born/solvent accessible)...

    The energy-based refinement of low-resolution protein structure models to atomic-level accuracy is a major challenge for computational structural biology. Here we describe a new approach to refining protein structure models that focuses sampling in regions most likely to contain errors while...

    Fragment assembly is a powerful method of protein structure prediction that builds protein models from a pool of candidate fragments taken from known structures. Stochastic sampling is subsequently used to refine the models. The structures are first represented as coarse-grained models and then...

    Muscle satellite cells make up a stem cell population that is capable of differentiating into myocytes and contributing to muscle regeneration upon injury. In this work we investigate the mechanism by which these muscle progenitor cells adopt an alternative cell fate, the cartilage fate. We show...

    Conformational sampling is one of the bottlenecks in fragment-based protein structure prediction approaches. They generally start with a coarse-grained optimization where mainchain atoms and centroids of side chains are considered, followed by a fine-grained optimization with an all-atom...

    Modulation of protein-protein interactions by competitive small-molecule binding emerges as a promising avenue for drug discovery. Hot spots, i.e., amino acids with important contributions to the overall interaction energy, provide useful targets within these interfaces. To avoid time-consuming...

    We propose a multiscale simulation method combining the efficiency of a coarse-grained model (CGM) and the accuracy of an all-atom model (AAM) for free-energy landscape calculation of protein systems. A protein's conformation space is quickly searched first using CGM. Then the obtained...

    The formation of protein-protein complexes is essential for proteins to perform their physiological functions in the cell. Mutations that prevent the proper formation of the correct complexes can have serious consequences for the associated cellular processes. Since experimental determination of...
