PEGylated proteins

PEGylated-protein.jpgEnhancement of proteins by PEGylation is an active area of research. To gain a better insight into these interactions or even make predictions, we published a protocol on how to simulate PEGylated proteins using the latest iteration of Martini:

Peptidoglycan model

A Martini model of bacterial cell wall peptidoglycan is now available, thanks to the nice work of Vaiwala et al. The parameters and other files can be found here.

Death is just the beginning ....

Check out a nice paper from Lucendo et al, in PNAS, showing how TM helix dimerization plays a role in apoptosis. Featuring the Martini 3 beta release, corroborated by atomistic simulations and experimental data.
