Dissipative Dynamics and the Statistics of Energy States of a Hookean Model for Protein Folding

Abstract

A generic model of a random polypeptide chain, with discrete torsional degrees of freedom and Hookean springs connecting pairs of hydrophobic residues, reproduces the energy probability distribution of real proteins over a very large range of energies. We show that this system with harmonic interactions, under dissipative dynamics driven by random noise… (More)
