Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) has the potential to become a high-throughput robust experimental method for the detection of protein-protein equilibrium constants. Poorly understood processes that affect the stability of weak noncovalent protein complexes in the intervening droplet environment are a significant factor that precludes the(More)
We study systematically the charging and release mechanisms of a flexible macromolecule, modeled by poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), in a droplet by using molecular dynamics simulations. We compare how PEG is solvated and charged by sodium Na+ ions in a droplet of water (H2O), acetonitrile (MeCN), and their mixtures. Initially, we examine the location and the(More)
Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry is used extensively to measure the equilibrium constant of noncovalent complexes. In this Perspective, we attempt to present an accessible introduction to computational methodologies that can be applied to determine the stability of weak noncovalent complexes in their journey from bulk solution into the gaseous(More)
Maintaining the interface of a weak transient protein complex transferred from bulk solution to the gaseous state via evaporating droplets is a critical question in the detection of the complex association (dissociation) constant by using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Here we explore the factors that may affect the stability of a(More)
We examine the effect of solvent on the charging mechanisms of a macromolecule in a droplet by using molecular dynamics simulations. The droplet contains excess charge that is carried by sodium ions. To investigate the principles of the charging mechanisms of a macromolecule in a droplet, we simulate aqueous and methanol droplets that contain a(More)
When a nano-drop comprising a single spherical central ion and dielectric solvent is charged above a well-defined threshold, it acquires a stable star morphology. In contrast, conducting droplets, will undergo fission. Here we report combined atomistic molecular dynamics and continuum modelling study of star formation of droplets that contain a highly(More)
