Statistical method for analysis of interactions between chosen protein and chondroitin sulfate in an aqueous environment

  title={Statistical method for analysis of interactions between chosen protein and chondroitin sulfate in an aqueous environment},
  author={Piotr Weber and Piotr Bełdowski and Adam Gadomski and Krzysztof Domino and Piotr Sionkowski and Damian Ledzi'nski},
We present the statistical method to study the interaction between a chosen protein and another molecule (e.g., both being components of lubricin found in synovial fluid) in a water environment. The research is performed on the example of univariate time series of chosen features of the dynamics of mucin, which interact with chondroitin sulfate (4 and 6) in four different saline solutions. Our statistical approach is based on recurrence methods to analyze chosen features of molecular dynamics…

Recent Progress in Cartilage Lubrication

A proposed synergy between different molecular components of the synovial joints, acting together in enabling the low friction, has been proposed and recent development of natural and bio‐inspired lubricants is reviewed.

Interactions between Beta-2-Glycoprotein-1 and Phospholipid Bilayer—A Molecular Dynamic Study

It was found that the protein binds stronger to the DPPC bilayer than to the POPE, but in both cases, it has the potential to change the local bilayer stability, and the diffusivity of lipids in the DP PC bilayer bound to the protein is significantly different from the diffuivity of the ones which are not in contact with the protein.

A Brief Introduction to Nonlinear Time Series Analysis and Recurrence Plots

This tutorial review provides a brief introduction to the fundamentals of nonlinear time series analysis, before discussing in greater detail a few (out of the many existing) approaches of recurrence plot-based analysis of time series.

Molecular Docking: Shifting Paradigms in Drug Discovery

This review describes how molecular docking was firstly applied to assist in drug discovery tasks, and illustrates newer and emergent uses and applications of docking, including prediction of adverse effects, polypharmacology, drug repurposing, and target fishing and profiling.

Hydration lubrication

The hydration lubrication paradigm, whereby hydration layers are both strongly held by the charges they surround, and so can support large pressures without being squeezed out, and at the same time

Examination of hairiness changes due to washing in knitted fabrics using a random walk approach

The relaxation of knitted fabrics is usually described in terms of dimensional changes of knitted loop widths and heights or fabric widths and heights, respectively. Due to washing, however,

Directed Ion Transport as Virtual Cause of Some Facilitated Friction–Lubrication Mechanism Prevailing in Articular Cartilage: A Hypothesis

Under departure from the acid–base, pH-dependent equilibrium, directed transport of protons (H+) is plausible, leading to a certain synergistic kinetic–thermodynamic pathway of the system as a whole, and would thoroughly contribute to some electrostatics-aided, interstitial (synovial) biofluid pressurization.
