Multi-Conformation Continuum Electrostatics - MCCE¶
Page last updated on: 2020-07-07
MCCE is a biophysics simulation program developed at Gunner Lab at City College of New York.
MCCE combines continuum electrostatics and molecular mechanics. In this program, the protein side chain motions are simulated explicitly while the dielectric effect of solvent and bulk protein material is modeled by continuum electrostatics.
What can MCCE do?¶
MCCE can calculate:
- residue pka, cofactor Em and protein PI in protein-solvent systems;
- protein structural responses to changes in charge;
- residue ionization changes in response to protein structural changes;
- location and stoichiometry of proton transfers coupled to electron transfer
