Coarse-grain simulations of the R-SNARE fusion protein in its membrane environment detect long-lived conformational sub-states.

Abstract:

Coarse-grain molecular dynamics are used to look at conformational and dynamic aspects of an R-SNARE peptide inserted in a lipid bilayer. This approach allows carrying out microsecond-scale simulations which bring to light long-lived conformational sub-states potentially interesting in the context of the membrane fusion mechanism mediated by the SNARE proteins. We show that these coarse-grain models are in agreement with most experimental data on the SNARE system, but differ in some details t...
