Communication: Chemical functionality of interfacial water enveloping nanoscale structural defects in proteins.

Abstract

Building upon a non-Debye multiscale treatment of water dielectrics, this work reveals the biochemical role of interfacial water enveloping nanoscale structural defects in soluble proteins, asserting its role as a chemical base. This quasi-reactant status is already implied by the significant concentration of structural defects in the vicinity of an… (More)
