We report full ab initio Hartree-Fock calculation to compute quantum mechanical interaction energies for beta-trypsin/benzamidine binding complex. In this study, the full quantum mechanical ab initio energy calculation for the entire protein complex with 3238 atoms is made possible by using a recently developed MFCC (molecular fractionation with conjugate(More)
We present a quantum mechanical approach to study protein-ligand binding structure with application to a Adipocyte lipid-binding protein complexed with Propanoic Acid. The present approach employs a recently develop molecular fractionation with a conjugate caps (MFCC) method to compute protein-ligand interaction energy and performs energy optimization using(More)
We present a computational study of a recently developed molecular fractionation with conjugated caps (MFCC) method for application to peptide/protein that has disulfide bonds. Specifically, we employ the MFCC approach to generate peptide fragments in which a disulfide bond is cut and a pair of conjugated caps are inserted. The method is tested on two(More)
We present a systematic study of numerical accuracy of various forms of molecular caps that are employed in a recently developed molecular fractionation scheme for full quantum mechanical computation of protein-molecule interaction energy. A previously studied pentapeptide (Gly-Ser-Ala-Asp-Val) or P5 interacting with a water molecule is used as a benchmark(More)
The transport and distribution of reaction products above catalytically active Pt microstructures was studied by spatially resolved scanning mass spectrometry (SMS) in combination with Monte Carlo simulation and fluid dynamics calculations, using the oxidation of CO as test reaction. The spatial gas distribution above the Pt fields was measured via a thin(More)
