Summary of "Configurational entropy components and their contribution to biomolecular complex formation."

Configurational entropy change is a central constituent of the free energy change in non-covalent interactions between biomolecules. Due to both experimental and computational limitations, however, the impact of individual contributions to configurational entropy change remains underexplored. Here, we develop a novel, fully analytical framework to dissect the configurational entropy change of binding into contributions coming from molecular-internal and external degrees of freedom. Importantly, this framework accounts for all coupled and uncoupled contributions in the absence of an external field. We employ our parallel implementation of the maximum-information spanning tree algorithm to provide a comprehensive numerical analysis of the importance of the individual contributions to configurational entropy change on an extensive set of molecular dynamics simulations of protein binding processes. Contrary to commonly accepted assumptions, we show that different coupling terms contribute significantly to the overall configurational entropy change. Finally, while the magnitude of individual terms may be largely unpredictable a priori, the total configurational entropy change can be well approximated by rescaling the sum of uncoupled contributions from internal degrees of freedom only, providing support for NMR-based approaches for configurational entropy change estimation.

A dystrophin-associated protein and component of the Biogenesis of Lysosomal Organelles Complex-1 (BLOC-1 complex) which is essential for the formation of LYSOSOME - derived organelles such as platelet dense granules and MELANOSOMES. DTNBP1 is expressed primarily in the brain and neurons, where it functions with ADAPTOR PROTEIN COMPLEX 3 to transport membrane proteins to NEURITES and nerve terminals. It also regulates the release of neurotransmitters, transport of synaptic vesicles, and localization of DOPAMINE D2 RECEPTORS. Mutations in the DTNBP1 gene are associated with Type 7 HERMANSKY-PUDLAK SYNDROME and SCHIZOPHRENIA.

NMR spectroscopy on small- to medium-size biological macromolecules. This is often used for structural investigation of proteins and nucleic acids, and often involves more than one isotope.
