Molecular dynamics simulations and membrane protein structure quality.
Despite a growing repertoire of membrane protein structures (currently approximately 120 unique structures), considerations of low resolution and crystallization in the absence of a lipid bilayer require the development of techniques to assess the global quality of membrane protein folds. This is also the case for assessment of, e.g. homology models of human membrane proteins based on structures of (distant) bacterial homologues. Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations may be used to help evaluat...Expand abstract
