STRUCTURE OF WATER HYDRATION AROUND COLLAGEN Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We investigate the hydration structure of collagen using molecular dynamics simulations. The water density maximum, and orientation near the surface of collagen and their specificity to the proximal collagen sequence are clearly visible in our analysis. These results provide insights into the effect of hydration in collagen self-assembly, and more generally, the anomalous behavior of water near protein surfaces. Copyright © 2010 by ASME.
