Static and dynamic properties of a new lattice model of polypeptide chains
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1991-03-01)
The equilibrium and dynamic properties of a new lattice model of proteins are explored in the athermal limit. In this model, consecutive -carbons of the model polypeptide are connected by vectors of the type (±2,±1,0). In ...
A reduced model of short range interactions in polypeptide chains
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-09-08)
A simple model of short range interactions is proposed for a reduced lattice representation of polypeptide conformation. The potential is derived on the basis of statistical regularities seen in the known crystal structures ...
Discretized model of proteins. I. Monte Carlo study of cooperativity in homopolypeptides
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1992-12-15)
A discretized model of globular proteins is employed in a Monte Carlo study of the helix-coil transition of polyalanine and the collapse transition of polyvaline. The present lattice realization permits real protein crystal ...
