Simulating Unfolding and Aggregation of Proteins

The direct interaction between small heat shock proteins, a class of protein chaperones, and Alzheimer’s beta (Abeta) peptides plays an important role in Abeta aggregation and Abeta-mediated cytotoxicity. In this talk, I will discuss the molecular interactions of a small heat shock protein with Abeta(17-42) peptides obtained from large-scale atomistic simulations. I will also present simulation results of a novel coarse-grained protein-like polymer model solvated in monatomic water, which provides the molecular basis of cold, heat, and pressure denaturation of proteins.

This Event is For: Graduate • Faculty • Post-Docs
