Abstract

Despite decades of intensive study, allosteric effects have eluded an intellectually satisfying integrated understanding that includes a description of the reaction coordinate in terms of species distributions of structures and free energy levels in the conformational ensemble. This chapter illustrates a way to fill this gap by interpreting thermodynamic and structural results through the lens of molecular dynamics simulation analysis to link atomic-level detail with global response. In this synergistic approach molecular dynamics forms an integral part of a feedback loop of hypothesis, experimental design, and interpretation that conforms to the scientific method.
