Optimal Martini 2 Cholesterol with LINCS

Optimized cholesterol model for Martini 2 to overcome the constraint convergence issues using LINCS.

 Details can be found in the publication:
B. Fábián, S. Thallmair, and Gerhard Hummer: Optimal bond constraint topology for molecular dynamics simulations of cholesterol. J. Chem. Theory Comput., 2023. DOI: 10.1021/acs.jctc.2c01032)

Artificial light harvesting dye (C8S3) for Martini 3

The parameters are for an artificial light harvesting dye (C8S3) which self-assembles into hollow nanotubes. Included are a gro and an itp for C8S3, a unit cell of the brickwork and herringbone formation, the script to make the cylinders, one nanotube and a bundle.

Details can be found in the publication:
Patmanidis et al., Nanoscale Advances, 2022, in press.


Nucleotide Cofactors for Martini 2

Thanks to the great work of Filipe Sousa and the Melo team, we can present to you nucleotide cofactors for Martini 2. This work includes topologies for key metabolites and cofactors, such as FAD, FMN, riboflavin, NAD, NADP, ATP, ADP, AMP, and thiamine pyrophosphate, in different oxidation and protonation states as well as smaller molecules derived from them (among others, nicotinamide, adenosine, adenine, ribose, thiamine, and lumiflavin), summing up a total of 79 different molecules.

PSII cofactors

Topologies for the cofactors associated with the Photosystem II. The ZIP-archives contain CG Martini topologies as well as united atom Gromos topologies for: Plastoquinone, Plastoquinol, Ubiquinone, Ubiquinol, *Beta-carotene, Heme b, Chlorophyll A and Pheophytin. Details on the parameterization and behavior of the topologies can be found in:

Atomistic and Coarse Grain Topologies for the Cofactors Associated with the PhotoSystem II Core Complex; Djurre H. de Jong, Nicoletta Liguori, Tom van den Berg, Clement Arnarez, Xavier Periole, and Siewert J. Marrink, J. Phys. Chem. B, 2015, 119 (25), pp 7791–7803.


*The file describing the tabulated angle of Betacarotene does not have the right format. Although it does  produce the right distribution, the dynamics are off. The tabulated potential and the ITP file below do have the right format, produce the right distribution and give better dynamics as compared to the atomistic simulations. Thanks to Floris van Eerden for pointing this out and providing us with the correct files.
