Investigation of pathways for the low-pH conformational transition in influenza hemagglutinin.


Targeted molecular dynamics simulations were used to study the conformational transition of influenza hemagglutinin (HA) from the native conformation to putative fusogenic or postfusion conformations populated at low pH. Three pathways for this conformational change were considered. Complete dissociation of the globular domains of HA was observed in one… (More)
