Computational studies of receptors

Abstract:

© The Royal Society of Chemistry 2017.Cell surface receptors are the principle molecules by which communication is managed between cells. They are essential, for example, in the transmission of neuronal signals in the brain and central nervous system. The propagation of the signal involves conformational changes in the receptor that can sometimes be quite large. Thus, as they are inherently dynamic molecules, computational methods such as normal modes and molecular dynamics are ideally suited...
