Water mediated proton hopping empowers proteins

Abstract:
Quantum dynamics simulations are used to test and validate the hypothesis that enhanced electronic activity and energetic efficiency in hydrated proteins are due to water-mediated proton hopping between peptide and peptenol states. Water is thereby an integral part of the electronic structure of a 'live' protein prior to denaturation. This journal is © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
