Study of movement independent of the forces that cause them

- Long sequence of amino-acids (dozens to thousands), also called residues from a dictionary of 20 amino-acids

- Represent the possible shapes of a protein (compare/classify shapes, find motifs)
- Answer proximity queries: Which atoms are close to a given atom? (computation of energy)
- Compute surface area (interaction with solvent)
- Find shape features, e.g., cavities (ligand-protein interaction)

- Large number of atoms Combinatorial problems
- Large number of degrees of freedom Large-dimensional conformation space
- Need to efficiently update information during simulation (surface area, proximity among atoms):
- What is the position of every atom in some given coordinate system?
- Which atoms intersect a given atom?
- What atoms are within some distance range from another one?

- Complex metric in conformational space
- Many shape matching issues

- Hard-sphere model (van der Waals radii)
- Van der Waals surface

Van der Waals interactions between twoatoms result from induced polarization

effect (formation of electric dipoles). Theyare weak, except at close range.

The van der Waals force is the force to which the gecko's unique ability to cling to smooth surfaces is attributed!

Drawback: The bond structure is not taken into account

The atomistic model does not encode this kinematic structure( algorithms must maintain appropriate bond lengths)

- Atomistic model: The position of each atom is defined by its coordinates in 3-D space
- Linkage model:The kinematics is defined byinternalcoordinates (bond lengths and angles, and torsional angles around bonds)

What is the potential problem with homogeneous coordinate matrix?

- Rigid bodies are:
- atoms (spheres), or
- groups of atoms

- Build the assembly of the first 3 atoms:
- Place 1st atom anywhere in space
- Place 2nd atom anywhere at bond length

- Build the assembly of the first 3 atoms:

In physiological conditions:

- Bond lengths are assumed constant [depend on “type” of bond, e.g., single: C-C or double C=C; vary from 1.0 Å (C-H) to 1.5 Å (C-C)]
- Bond angles are assumed constant[~120dg]
- Only some torsional (dihedral) angles may vary
- Fewer parameters: 3p-6 p-3

- Atomistic model:The position of each atom is defined by its coordinates in 3-D spaceDrawback: Fixed bond lengths/angles are encoded as additional constraints. More parameters
- Linkage model:The kinematics is defined byinternal parameters (bond lengths and angles, and torsional angles around bonds)Drawback: Small local changes may have big global effects. Errors accumulate. Forces are more difficult to express
- Simplified (f-y-c) linkage model: Fixed bond lengths, bond angles and torsional angles are directly embedded in the representation.Drawback: Fine tuning is difficult

Computational errors may accumulate

- Too many rotation parameters
- Accumulation of computing errors along a protein backbone and repeated computation
- Non-redundant 3-parameter representationsof rotations have many problems: singularities, no simple algebra
- A useful, less redundant representation of rotation is the unitquaternion
