Molecular dynamics simulations of polypeptide conformations in water: A comparison of alpha, beta, and poly(pro)II conformations


, : Molecular dynamics simulations of polypeptide conformations in water: A comparison of alpha, beta, and poly(pro)II conformations. Proteins 36(4): 400-406

A significant fraction of the so-called "random coil" residues in globular proteins exists in the left-handed poly(Pro)II conformation. In order to compare the behavior of this secondary structure with that of the other regular secondary structures, molecular dynamics simulations, with the GROMOS suite of programs, of an alanine octapeptide in water, in alpha-helix, beta-strand, and left-handed poly(Pro)II conformations, have been performed.

This article presents a comparative analysis of two replica-exchange simulation methods for the structure refinement of protein loop conformations, starting from low-resolution predictions. The methods are self-guided Langevin dynamics (SGLD) and...
