Energetic and Dynamic Aspects of the Affinity Maturation Process: Characterizing Improved Variants from the Bevacizumab Antibody with Molecular Simulations

Abstract

Antibody affinity maturation is one of the fundamental processes of immune defense against invading pathogens. From the biological point of view, the clonal selection hypothesis represents the most accepted mechanism to explain how mutations increasing the affinity for target antigens are introduced and selected in antibody molecules. However, understanding… (More)
