  • Accepted paper on Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS)
    "Unbinding kinetics of a p38 MAP kinase type II inhibitor from metadynamics simulations" of Casasnovas, Limongelli et al. has been accepted for publication on JACS. In this work, we compute from metadynamics calculations the ligand unbinding kinetic constant koff and characterize the rate-limiting step of its unbinding process from the pharmacologically relevant enzyme MAP p38 kinase. We also show how to assess a-posteriori the kinetic calculations and distinguish successful from unsuccessful simulations.
