Abstract

In this chapter we review recent theoretical and computational work on the flexibility of biomolecules. This approach uses constraint theory and includes all the constraints in a biomolecule that are important at room temperature. A rigid region decomposition determines the rigid regions (both stressed and unstressed) and the flexible regions that separate them. Enzymes usually have a rigid core for stability and flexible regions for functionality. The rigid region decomposition can be used as input to for a Monte Carlo dynamics in which the flexible regions are allowed to move, consistent with the constraints. Results are illustrated with the proteins HIV protease and barnase.
