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


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