CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda):Molecular dynamics is applied to characterize the isolated structures of the ®rst two generations of lactodendrimers as well as their possible inclusion complexes with four well-known molecular drugs. The results seem to indicate that the ®rst generation can easily include small drugs, whereas a larger guest such as
Areas to cover may include: Multiscale molecular simulations that provide quantitative insights into the molecular mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 infection; Experimental techniques combined with simulations and data analysis techniques; Novel computational approaches that address viral-host protein interactions and systems biology Frontiers Elucidating Interactions Between SARS-CoV-2 Jan 05, 2021 · Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). As of October 21, 2020, more than 41.4 million confirmed cases and 1.1 million deaths have been reported. Thus, it is immensely important to develop drugs and vaccines to combat COVID-19. The spike protein present on the outer surface of the virion plays a major role in

The host-guest inclusion complexes of cucurbit uril with dillapiole and its Modeling Soft Supramolecular Nanostructures by Molecular Aug 01, 2018 · Standard molecular simulation methods have reproduced the absolute thermodynamic properties of binding (standard free-energy, enthalpy and entropy) between host-guest systems . The absolute binding free-energy can be eed as the sum of separate free-energy contributions corresponding to a step-by-step process describing the association
Jun 06, 2019 · Molecular Simulations Reveal the Role of Antibody Fine Specificity and Viral Maturation State on Antibody-Dependent Enhancement of Infection in Dengue Virus. Ripoll DR(1)(2), Wallqvist A(2), Chaudhury S(2). Author information:(1)Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF), Rockville, MD, United States. Molecular dynamics simulations of small molecule diffusion Subsequently, the solute diffusion coefficients are computed by performing Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. Our general finding is that the solute diffusion coefficients in these host matrices correlate well with the accessible volume fraction, which collapses onto one single variable the twin effects of solute size and polymer concentration.
Molecular dynamics simulations of the DNA interaction with metallic nanoparticles and TiO 2 surfaces. In Models in Bioscience and Materials Research:Molecular Dynamics and Related Techniques (pp. 167-200). Nova Science Publishers, Inc.. Molecular recognition of a host protein by NS1 of pandemic Mar 24, 2020 · The multifunctional activity of NS1 depends on interactions with a variety of host proteins. Thus, elucidating the binding mechanism between NS1 and host proteins provides important insights into influenza virulence at the molecular level. So far, however, only a few structures of NS1 complexed with host factors have been determined (15, 23, 24). Moreover, the structure of 1918 NS1 in complex with host
Apr 05, 2021 · Description. We use molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to study key molecular processes of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We concentrate on the structure of the spike (S) protein at the viral surface, its interactions with the host cell, and on viral modulation of the host immune response. Molecular simulations of vesicles and dendrimers Among these, dendrimers are unique for their well-controlled branched architecture and, with ends functionalized to form binding sites, they are ideal for hostguest chemistry.As the transitions during vesicle fusion and the interactions of the dendrimer host with individual guest molecules occur on small temporal and spatial scales, they are experimentally infeasible to observe directly; we therefore study
Oct 13, 2020 · The analyses performed included ADMET analysis of phytochemicals, molecular docking of phytochemicals with targeted proteins of a novel coronavirus, binding analysis through molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, and reactivity analysis through density functional theory (DFT) calculations. 2. Materials and Methods Polymer Nanocomposites:Molecular Dynamics Simulations Molecular dynamics simulations were used to study the interlayer structure and dynamics of polystyrene (PS) and polystyrene-polyisoprene (PS-PI) block copolymers intercalated in organically modified layered silicates. In the case of PS the polymer chains displace the aliphatic surfactant chains and reside adjacent to the silicate layers.
