Title Lyophilised protein dynamics: more than just methyls?
Abstract The movement of molecules on the fast pico- (ps) to nano- (ns) second time scale in proteins affects the slower, larger lengthscale dynamics involved in protein folding and biological function. As a result, detailed understanding of structure-dynamics-function relationships requires the use of theoretical models that incorporate the full dynamic complexity of a bio-material. To advance such models we have used neutrons to probe protein dynamics on the ps-ns timescale in a series of proteins: apoferritin (Apo), insulin (Ins), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and green fluorescent protein (GfP). Our results hint at a protein structure dependent dynamic landscape.
