Molecular mechanics of different docking modes of robin cryptochrome to iron sulphur cluster assembly
The goal of the project is to judge the viability of iron sulfur cluster assembly protein (ISCA1) as a magnetoreceptor interaction partner to cryptochrome in the european robin by simulating molecular mechanics of docking modes. Several models of different docking modes are to be constructed and dynamically simulated with molecular mechanics, and their viability judged through analysis of the time evolution and stability of the individual models by employing statistical mechanics.
