Thermomechanical properties of anti-parallel β-sheets with Bombyx mori silk nano structures [Gly-Ser-Gly-Ala-Gly-Ala]n and [Gly-Ala]n Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2016 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. The present study aims to investigate temperature dependence of anisotropic mechanical properties of anti-parallel beta pleated sheets with Bombyx mori silk nano structures in sequence of [Gly-Ser-Gly-Ala-Gly-Ala]n and commonly used model in sequence of [Gly-Ala]n. Classical molecular dynamics simulation method was used to carry out calculations, preliminary, at 300K. Ionic interactions were modeled by CHARMM force field method. Substitution of Ala with Ser residue results with a gradual conformational change in the stress-strain.
