Abstract

The deformation patterns of a large set of representative proteins determined by essential dynamics extracted from atomistic simulations and coarse-grained normal mode analysis are compared. Our analysis shows that the deformational space obtained with both approaches is quite similar when taking into account a representative number of modes. The results provide not only a comprehensive validation of the use of a low-frequency modal spectrum to describe protein flexibility, but also a complete picture of normal mode limitations.
