The energetics of water molecules in proteins is studied using the water placement software Dowser. We compared the water position predictions for 14 high-resolution crystal structures of oligopeptide-binding protein (OppA) containing a large number of resolved internal water molecules. From the analysis of the outputs of Dowser with variable parameters and(More)
A new approach for computing hydration free energies DeltaG(solv) of organic solutes is formulated and parameterized. The method combines a conventional PCM (polarizable continuum model) computation for the electrostatic component DeltaG(el) of DeltaG(solv) and a specially detailed algorithm for treating the complementary nonelectrostatic contributions(More)
