  1. 1. Challenges in Computational Biochemistry: Solvation and Ligand Binding

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jens Carlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Molecular biology; computer simulations; molecular dynamics; solvation free energy; Generalized-Born; Poisson-Boltzmann; ligand binding; binding free energy; linear interaction energy; binding entropy; hydration entropy; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Accurate calculations of free energies for molecular association and solvation are important for the understanding of biochemical processes, and are useful in many pharmaceutical applications. In this thesis, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are used to calculate thermodynamic properties for solvation and ligand binding. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish De allra flesta människor har vid något tillfälle tagit ett läkemedel. Till exempel vaccineras nu för tiden alla svenska barn mot bland annat stelkramp. Vad nog de allra flesta däremot inte har gjort är att fundera på vad ett läkemedel är. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment of Computational Methods for Ligand Binding

    University dissertation from Division of Theoretical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Proteins are a big biological molecules that help cells to function. Proteins play important roles in all vital processes of the living cell, transporting molecules, speeding up chemical reactions, supporting structure of other proteins and the cell, helping the cell to move. Various disease-causing agents (e.g. READ MORE

    Abstract : Understanding how drugs work is of great importance, since it can facilitate drug discovery, both time- and costwise. At the same time, it is important to have methods that can help predict how well does a potential drug molecule bind to its target. Computational methods can in many ways contribute to drug design process. READ MORE
