Anharmonic normal mode analysis of elastic network model improves the modeling of atomic fluctuations in protein crystal structures.


Protein conformational dynamics, despite its significant anharmonicity, has been widely explored by normal mode analysis (NMA) based on atomic or coarse-grained potential functions. To account for the anharmonic aspects of protein dynamics, this study proposes, and has performed, an anharmonic NMA (ANMA) based on the C(alpha)-only elastic network models… (More)
