Many proteins are molecular nano-machines, which perform their biological function via well-coordinated structural transitions. Often, these motions occur on much slower time scales than those accessible to conventional molecular dynamics techniques, which are limited to submicrosecond time scales by current computer technology. This is also true for ligand binding and unbinding reactions. Force probe simulations (or steered molecular dynamics) provide a powerful means to overcome this… CONTINUE READING
