Ab initio methods for protein structure prediction
Recent breakthroughs in DNA and protein sequencing have unlocked many secrets of molecular biology. A complete understanding of gene function, however, requires a protein structure in addition to its sequence. Modern protein ...
Effect of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on the mechanical and electrical stability of phospholipid membranes
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) display powerful anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic activities. Serious side effects of NSAIDs, such as gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding and peptic ulcer disease, ...
Crystallographic refinement of thermal parameters using normal modes
We have developed a software package that models the anisotropic temperature factors of protein structures derived from crystallographic data using normal mode vectors. We hypothesize that the intrinsic flexibility of a ...
