Computational methods based on continuum electrostatics are widely used in theoretical biochemistry to analyze the function of proteins. Continuum electrostatic methods in combination with quantum chemical and molecular mechanical methods can help to analyze even very complex biochemical systems. In this article, applications of these methods to proteins involved in photosynthesis are reviewed. After giving a short introduction to the basic concepts of the continuum electrostatic model based on… CONTINUE READING
