Binding free energy calculations of galectin-3-ligand interactions.

Abstract

Galectins show remarkable binding specificity towards beta-galactosides. A recently developed method for calculating binding free energies between a protein and its substrates has been used to evaluate the binding specificity of galectin-3. Five disaccharides and a tetrasaccharide were used as the substrates. The calculated binding free energies agree quite… (More)
