2. The second stems from the fact that non covalent interactions account for the structure of macromolecular complexes. Given that the distance between non-covalently bonded atoms is strictly larger than the sum of their vdW radii, a vdW model does not inform us about such contacts in a complex—atoms from two chains in contact do not intersect. Both problems are solved resorting in the Solvent Accessible Model, which consists of expanding the atomic radii, thus mimicking a continuous layer of solvent molecules.
Shape information was also incorporated, notably in the dependence of the densities on the concave or convex regions in the protein surface. Second, models of binding patches have been used to investigate the correlations between structural parameters and dissociation free energies. In , the weighted average of the shelling order of the atoms of the binding patch has been shown to outperform all other contenders to predict the binding affinities of the binding affinity benchmark . On the morphology of an interface: core and rim models.
Experimental observables reflect the intrinsically statistical quality of the phenomena, in which a large number of macromolecules, under thermal agitation, repeatedly visit and revisit favorable regions of the conformational space and only rarely venture into higher energy zones. The strength (affinity) of a specific interaction between two macromolecules is typically determined by the properties of three regions in the configurational space, which regroups the conformational spaces of the two isolated components and of the complex.
