The elastic rod theory is used together with all‐atom normal mode analysis in implicit solvent to characterize the mechanical flexibility of duplex DNA. The bending, twisting, stretching rigidities extracted from all‐atom simulations (on linear duplexes from 60 to 150 base pairs in length and...
Dimerization of HIV‐1 genomic RNA is initiated by kissing loop interactions at the Dimerization Initiation Site (DIS). Dynamics of purines that flank the 5′ ends of the loop–loop helix in HIV‐1 DIS kissing complex were explored using explicit solvent molecular dynamics (MD) simulations...
A peak fitting procedure has been implemented for calculating crystallinity in granular starches. This methodology, widely used for synthetic polymers, is proposed to better reflect the crystalline content of starches than the method normally used, in which it is assumed that relatively perfect...
The temperature dependence of helical propensities for the peptides Ac‐ZGG‐(KAAAA)3X‐NH2 (Z = Y or G, X = A, K, and D‐Arg) were studied both experimentally and by MD simulations. Good agreement is observed in both the absolute helical propensities as well as relative helical content along...
The length distribution of cytoskeletal filaments is an important physical parameter, which can modulate physiological cell functions. In both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells various biological cytoskeletal polymers form supramolecular structures due to short‐range forces induced mainly by...
Circular dichroism using synchrotron radiation (SRCD) can extend the spectral range down to ∼130 nm for dry proteins, potentially providing new structural information. Using a selection of dried model proteins, including α‐helical, β‐sheet, and mixed‐structure proteins, we observe a...
Folding propensities of bombinins H2 and H4, two members of amphibian bombinins H, a family of 17–20 residue α‐helical peptides, have been investigated by means of circular dichroism (CD) measurements and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The two peptides, with primary structure...
