    Notes: Molecular dynamics simulations of triclinic hen egg white lysozyme in aqueous solution were performed to calculate the intrinsic pKas of 14 ionizable residues. An all-atom model was used for both solvent and solute, and a single 180 ps simulation in conjunction with a Gaussian fluctuation analysis method was used. An advantage of the Gaussian fluctuation method is that it only requires a single simulation of the system in a reference state to calculate all the pKas in the protein, in contrast to multiple simulations for the free energy perturbation method. pKint shifts with respect to reference titratable residues were evaluated and compared to results obtained using a finite difference Poisson-Boltzmann (FDPB) method with a continuum solvent model; overall agreement with the direction of the shifts was generally observed, though the magnitude of the shifts was typically larger with the explicit solvent model. The contribution of the first solvation shell to the total charging free energies of the titratable groups was explicitly evaluated and found to be significant. Dielectric shielding between pairs of titratable groups was examined and found to be smaller than expected. The effect of the approximations used to treat the long-range interactions on the pKint shifts is discussed. © 1994 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

    Notes: Bloch–Redfield theory helps bridge the gap between classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and (still unavailable) full quantum-mechanical simulation of processes in condensed media. It allows one to describe quantum processes in terms of a few parameters which can be computed from MD simulations. In this letter we present results which show that it is practical to use Bloch–Redfield theory to describe the relaxation of high-energy (≥kT) vibrational modes and that it gives answers which differ from the classical MD ones.
