Paper Abstract

Protein function is reliant on structural flexibility and this flexibility is slaved to the surrounding solvent. Here we discuss how the exposed surface of the protein influences the solvent dynamics and thereby influences the protein's own structural dynamics. We discuss measurements of the THz absorption of water in the presence of hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces.
