Enzymatic activity in crowded spaces

Insight into the behavior of molecules is needed in order to understand living organisms at the microscopic level. Moreover, cellular compartments have recently become an inspiration to the fields of biotechnology and biomedicine (such as new biological nanoreactors). The research team led by Fabio Sterpone, CNRS senior scientist at LBT (Laboratoire de Biochimie Théorique, Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique), employed a novel computational approach to simulate the first detailed model of a biological nanoreactor using the MUPHY Multiphysics code coupling microscopic Molecular Dynamics (MD) with a hydro-kinetic Lattice Boltzmann (LB) method. ...
