The spectroscopic, thermal, and functional properties of blue copper proteins can be modulated by mutations in the metal binding loop. Molecular dynamics simulation was used to compare the conformational properties of azurin and two chimeric variants, which were obtained by inserting into the azurin scaffold the copper binding loop of amicyanin and(More)
Human serum albumin possesses multiple binding sites and transports a wide range of ligands that include the anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen. A complete map of the binding sites of ibuprofen in albumin is difficult to obtain in traditional experiments, because of the structural adaptability of this protein in accommodating small ligands. In this work, we(More)
The interaction of saturated fatty acids of different length (C8:0 to C18:0) with β-lactoglobulin (βLG) was investigated by molecular dynamics simulation and docking approaches. The results show that the presence of such ligands in the hydrophobic central cavity of βLG, known as the protein calyx, determines an enhancement of atomic fluctuations compared(More)
