Paper Abstract

In this contribution, we report on a study of the self- organization of isolated polypeptides. The process is computer simulated by the method of molecular dynamics. We observed that the helical structures have a very impotent role in the protein self-organization. We have found conditions under which such structures to be stable. The process and result of self-organization under these conditions were sharply different from others, unable to maintain the helical structures. The structures obtained have a strong resemblance to the native conformations of the corresponding real proteins in a case of proteins composed by helical domains.
