Dynamic closed states of a ligand-gated ion channel captured by cryo-EM and simulations

Here, we report cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) structures of the proton-activated Gloeobacter violaceus ligand-gated ion channel (GLIC) under three pH conditions. Decreased pH was associated with improved resolution and side chain rearrangements at the subunit/domain interface, particularly involving functionally important residues in the β1–β2 and M2–M3 loops.

Enabling the execution of large scale workflows for molecular dynamics simulations

In this paper we present an approach to support biomolecular researchers in the development of complex workflows. Our approach is based on the orchestration of computational building blocks for Molecular Dynamics simulations through an efficient workflow management system that has already been adopted in many scientific fields to run applications on multitudes of computing backends.
