A10 Antes: Conformational switching induced by protein-ligand assembly

In this project, we will investigate the mechanisms of conformational switching upon ligand binding by in silico methods, focusing on ligand binding induced rearrangements of domain-domain association angles and on collective motions though the core of the binding-domain and their influence on large-scale domain-domain movements. In this context, we will develop new computational approaches as well as collaborate with different experimental groups within the CRC and use the newly developed and established in silico methods to gain a more detailed understanding of the dynamic properties of the investigated systems.

The project investigator passed away 2021. The project research will not be continued.
