Abstract(summary):

We present a directed essential dynamics (DED) method for peptide and protein folding. DED is a molecular dynamics method based on the essential dynamics sampling and the principal component analysis. The main idea of DED is to use principal component analysis to determine the direction of the most active collective motion of peptides at short intervals of time (20 fs) during the folding process and then add an additional force along it to adjust the folding direction. This method can make the peptides avoid being trapped in the local minima for a long time and enhance the sampling efficiency in conformational space during the simulation. An S-peptide with 15 amino acids is used to demonstrate the DED method. The results show that DED can lead the S-peptide to fold quickly into the native state, whereas traditional molecular dynamics needs more time to do this.
