Harmonicity in slow protein dynamics

Chemical Physics 261 (1-2) 25-37

Abstract :

The slow dynamics of proteins around its native folded state is usually described by diffusion in a strongly anharmonic potential. In this paper, we try to understand the form and origin of the anharmonicities, with the principal aim of gaining a better understanding of the principal motion types, but also in order to develop more efficient numerical methods for simulating neutron scattering spectra of large proteins.
