Modeling of structural, energetic, and dynamic properties of few-atom silver clusters embedded in polynucleotide strands by using molecular dynamics

Résultats de recherche: Contribution à un journal/une revueArticle


This work concerns the study of the structural, energetic, and dynamic properties of fluorescent systems composed of silver clusters stabilized by polynucleotide strands. To do so, classical interaction potentials relative to silver, neutral and cationic, were introduced in the AMBER force field. Molecular dynamics simulations allowed analysis of the nature and force of the interactions between the various parts of the nucleic oligomers and the silver clusters. Conformational analyses were necessary to explore the flexibility of the supramolecular assemblies, specifically by radial distribution functions and Ramachandrantype maps.
