Proton binding to proteins: a free-energy component analysis using a dielectric continuum model.
Proton binding plays a critical role in protein structure and function. We report pK(a) calculations for three aspartates in two proteins, using a linear response approach, as well as a "standard"Expand

Kinetics, in silico docking, molecular dynamics, and MM‐GBSA binding studies on prototype indirubins, KT5720, and staurosporine as phosphorylase kinase ATP‐binding site inhibitors: The role of water
With an aim toward glycogenolysis control in Type 2 diabetes, we have investigated via kinetic experiments and computation the potential of indirubin (IC50 > 50 μM), indirubin‐3′‐oxime (IC50 = 144Expand

Free energy simulations: The meaning of the individual contributions from a component analysis
A theoretical analysis is made of the decomposition into contributions from individual interactions of the free energy calculated by thermodynamic integration. It is demonstrated that such aExpand

Binding free energies and free energy components from molecular dynamics and Poisson-Boltzmann calculations. Application to amino acid recognition by aspartyl-tRNA synthetase.
Specific amino acid binding by aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRS) is necessary for correct translation of the genetic code. Engineering a modified specificity into aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases has beenExpand

Crossreactivity to vinculin and microbes provides a molecular basis for HLA-based protection against rheumatoid arthritis.
The HLA locus is the strongest risk factor for anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA)(+) rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Despite considerable efforts in the last 35 years, this association is poorlyExpand

The 1.76 A resolution crystal structure of glycogen phosphorylase B complexed with glucose, and CP320626, a potential antidiabetic drug.
CP320626, a potential antidiabetic drug, inhibits glycogen phosphorylase in synergism with glucose. To elucidate the structural basis of synergistic inhibition, we determined the structure of muscleExpand

Kinetic and crystallographic studies of glucopyranose spirohydantoin and glucopyranosylamine analogs inhibitors of glycogen phosphorylase
Glycogen phosphorylase (GP) is currently exploited as a target for inhibition of hepatic glycogenolysis under high glucose conditions. Spirohydantoin of glucopyranose andExpand
