Chapter 2 Time-Dependent Spectral Shifts in Tryptophan Fluorescence : Bridging Experiments with Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are widely used to model protein motions. Although the time resolution of MD simulations is virtually unlimited, simulated MD is seldom compared with experimental
Computational estimation of ms-sec atomistic folding times
The folding of atomistic, implicitly solvated protein systems with folding times τf ranging from ~100 μs to ~10s using the weighted ensemble (THE AUTHORS) strategy in combination with GPU computing is reported.

Transition path sampling and forward flux sampling. Applications to biological systems.
While path sampling methods have a widespread application to many types of rare transitional events, here only recent applications involving biomolecules are reviewed, including isomerization, protein folding, and enzyme catalysis.


Protein Folding—Simulation
Understanding Molecular Simulation
Metadynamics as a Tool for Exploring Free Energy Landscapes of Chemical Reactions
The metadynamics or hills method is a relatively new molecular dynamics technique aimed to enhance the sampling of separated regions in phase space and map out the underlying free energy landscape as
Heteropolymer freezing and design: Towards physical models of protein folding
Protein folding has become one of the most actively studied problems in modern molecular biophysics. Approaches to the problem combine ideas from the physics of disordered systems, polymer physics,
The GB/SA Continuum Model for Solvation. A Fast Analytical Method for the Calculation of Approximate Born Radii
Atomic Born radii (α) are used in the generalized Born (GB) equation to calculate approximations to the electrical polarization component (Gpol) of solvation free energy. We present here a simple
A statistical method for identifying transition states in high dimensional problems
A statistical method based on Monte Carlo sampling of paths associated with Markovian stochastic processes is proposed for the location of transition states in molecularly complex reactions, and an algorithm for Metropolis sampling of Metropolis paths (based on the Metropolis random walk process) is devised.
Parametrizing a polarizable force field from ab initio data. I. The fluctuating point charge model
We have developed a polarizable force field for peptides, using all-atom OPLS (OPLS-AA) nonelectrostatic terms and electrostatics based on a fluctuating charge model and fit to ab initio calculations
Statistical mechanics of isomerization dynamics in liquids and the transition state approximation
In this article, time correlation function methods are used to discuss classical isomerization reactions of small nonrigid molecules in liquid solvents. Molecular expressions are derived for a
Characterizing the rate-limiting step of Trp-cage folding by all-atom molecular dynamics simulations
Detailed analysis suggests that packing of the structurally important Trp25 side chain is involved in the rate-limiting step and unfolding of the misfolded states and overcoming the additional entropic barrier also contribut...
Simulation of protein folding by reaction path annealing
We present a systematic application of reaction path sampling to computer simulations of the folding of peptides and small proteins at atomic resolution in the presence of solvent. We use a simulated
