Electromagnetic-field effects on structure and dynamics of amyloidogenic peptides.
Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are ever-present, and so is the need to better understand their influence on human health and biological matter in general. The interaction between a molecular system and external EMF can alter the structure, and dynamic

Synaptobrevin Transmembrane Domain Dimerization Studied by Multiscale Molecular Dynamics Simulations.
Synaptic vesicle fusion requires assembly of the SNARE complex composed of SNAP-25, syntaxin-1, and synaptobrevin-2 (sybII) proteins. The SNARE proteins found in vesicle membranes have previously been shown to dimerize via transmembrane (TM) domain i

Multiscale Estimation of Binding Kinetics Using Brownian Dynamics, Molecular Dynamics and Milestoning.
The kinetic rate constants of binding were estimated for four biochemically relevant molecular systems by a method that uses milestoning theory to combine Brownian dynamics simulations with more detailed molecular dynamics simulations. The rate const

Molecular dynamics simulations of silver nanocluster supported on carbon nanotube.
We carried out molecular dynamics simulations to examine the thermal, structural and dynamics properties of single walled carbon nanotube-supported silver nanoclusters with N=38, 108 and 256 atoms. The nanoclusters were simulated in two stages: first

Coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations of protein-ligand binding.
Coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CGMD) simulations with the MARTINI force field were performed to reproduce the protein-ligand binding processes. We chose two protein-ligand systems, the levansucrase-sugar (glucose or sucrose), and LinB-1,2-dichlor

Atomistic spin model simulations of magnetic nanomaterials.
Atomistic modelling of magnetic materials provides unprecedented detail about the underlying physical processes that govern their macroscopic properties, and allows the simulation of complex effects such as surface anisotropy, ultrafast laser-induced

Multiscale simulations of protein-facilitated membrane remodeling.
Protein-facilitated shape and topology changes of cell membranes are crucial for many biological processes, such as cell division, protein trafficking, and cell signaling. However, the inherently multiscale nature of membrane remodeling presents a co

Recent applications of boxed molecular dynamics: a simple multiscale technique for atomistic simulations.
In this paper, we briefly review the boxed molecular dynamics (BXD) method which allows analysis of thermodynamics and kinetics in complicated molecular systems. BXD is a multiscale technique, in which thermodynamics and long-time dynamics are recove

Multiscale molecular dynamics simulations of sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles: from coarse-grained to all-atom resolution.
Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) is a well-known anionic detergent widely used in both experimental and theoretical investigations. Many molecular dynamics (MD) simulation have been performed on the SDS molecule at coarse-grained (CG), united-atom (UA),
