Molecular Dynamics Simulations Elucidate Nanopore/DNA Interactions (image) University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center Share Print E-Mail Caption Molecular dynamics simulations on Stampede reproduced the capture of nanocarrier-DNA complex by a mutant alpha-hemolysin pore embedded in lipid bilayer. This video depicts ~35 nanoseconds of simulation time. The protein is shown in orange cutaway, the membrane in ochre lines and spheres, and the nanocarrier-DNA complex in licorice: DNA in red, proteo-nucleic acids (PNA) in teal, and polycationic peptide tag in blue and green.
