The GROMOS 53A6 parameter sets have been shown to reproduce an extensive range of thermodynamics data in condensed phase (Oostenbrink et al., J Comput Chem 2004, 25, 1656), mainly due to the reoptimized nonbonded interactions. Here, we derive refinements for the descriptions of peptide backbone conformations for this parameter set. A two-dimensional(More)
The interactions between RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) with RNA play key roles in managing some of the cell's basic functions. The identification and prediction of RNA binding sites is important for understanding the RNA-binding mechanism. Computational approaches are being developed to predict RNA-binding residues based on the sequence- or structure-derived(More)
GOPC (Golgi-associated PDZ and coiled-coil motif-containing protein) represents a PDZ domain-containing protein associated with the Golgi apparatus, which plays important roles in vesicular trafficking in secretory and endocytic pathways. GOPC interacts with many other proteins, such as the Wnt receptors Frizzled 8 and neuroligin via its PDZ domain.(More)
The effects of Cu(2+) binding and the utilization of different force fields when modeling the structural characteristics of α-syn12 peptide were investigated. To this end, we performed extensive temperature replica exchange molecular dynamics (T-REMD) simulations on Cu(2+)-bound and unbound α-syn12 peptide using the GROMOS 43A1, OPLS-AA, and AMBER03 force(More)
Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) are proteins that usually do not adopt well-defined native structures when isolated in solution under physiological conditions. Numerous IDPs have close relationships with human diseases such as tumor, Parkinson disease, Alzheimer disease, diabetes, and so on. These disease-associated IDPs commonly play principal(More)
The aim of this work is to investigate the effects of different force fields and temperatures on the structural character of Aβ (12-28) peptide in aqueous solution. Moreover, the structural character of Aβ (12-28) peptide is compared with other amyloid peptides (such as H1 and α-syn12 peptide). The two independent temperature replica exchange molecular(More)
The structural and thermodynamics characters of α-syn12 (residues 1-12 of the human α-synuclein protein) peptide in aqueous solution were investigated through temperature replica-exchange molecular dynamics (T-REMD) simulations with the GROMOS 43A1 force field. The two independent T-REMD simulations were completed starting from an initial conformational(More)
The structural and thermodynamic characters of alpha-syn12 peptide in aqueous solution at different pH and temperatures have been investigated through temperature replica exchange molecular dynamics (T-REMD) simulations with GROMOS 43A1 force field. The two independent T-REMD simulations were completed at pH = 7.0 and 10.0, respectively. Each replica was(More)
Most natural protein sequences have resulted from millions or even billions of years of evolution. How they differ from random sequences is not fully understood. Previous computational and experimental studies of random proteins generated from noncoding regions yielded inclusive results due to species-dependent codon biases and GC contents. Here, we(More)
The dynamics and thermodynamics character of H1 peptide in aqueous solution has been investigated through temperature replica exchange molecular dynamics (T-REMD) simulations using two different force fields (OPLS-AA and GROMOS 43A1). The two independent T-REMD simulations were completed starting from initial conformations alpha-helix and beta-sheet,(More)
