We study the thermodynamic behavior of a model protein with 54 amino acidsthat is designed to form a three-helix bundle in its native state. The model contains three types of amino acids and five to six atoms per amino acid, and has the Ramachandran torsion angles as its only degrees of freedom.The force field is based on hydrogen bonds and effective… CONTINUE READING
