Water-peptide dynamics during conformational transitions

Nerukh, Dmitry and Karabasov, Sergey (2013). Water-peptide dynamics during conformational transitions. Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, 4 (5), pp. 815-819.

Abstract

Transitions between metastable conformations of a dipeptide are investigated using classical molecular dynamics simulation with explicit water molecules. The distribution of the surrounding water at different moments before the transitions and the dynamical correlations of water with the peptide's configurational motions indicate that the water molecules represent an integral part of the molecular system during the conformational changes, in contrast to the metastable periods when water and peptide dynamics are essentially decoupled.
