Native Conformation and Canonical Disulfide Bond Formation Are Interlinked Properties of HIV1 Env Glycoproteins
(Science Publications, 201603)We investigated whether there is any association between a nativelike conformation and the presence of only the canonical (i.e., native) disulfide bonds in the gp120 subunits of a soluble recombinant human immunodeficiency ... 
Influences on the Design and Purification of Soluble, Recombinant NativeLike HIV1 Envelope Glycoprotein Trimers
(Science Publications, 20150826)We have investigated factors that influence the production of nativelike soluble, recombinant trimers based on the env genes of two isolates of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV1), specifically 92UG037.8 (clade ... 
Comparative Analysis of the Glycosylation Profiles of MembraneAnchored HIV1 Envelope Glycoprotein Trimers and Soluble gp140
(Science Publications, 20150527)The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV1) envelope glycoprotein (Env) trimer, which consists of the gp120 and gp41 subunits, is the focus of multiple strategies for vaccine development. Extensive Env glycosylation ... 
Recent advances in the discovery and design of multicomponent reactions for the generation of smallmolecule libraries
(Dove Medical Press, 20150904)The current drug discovery process is dependent on the ability of synthetic chemistry to deliver libraries of small molecules with ever increasing levels of structural complexity and diversity. Sequencing multicomponent ... 
Assessment of lowscaling approximations to the equation of motion coupledcluster singles and doubles equations
(American Meteorological Society, 2014)Methods for fast and reliable computation of electronic excitation energies are in short supply, and little is known about their systematic performance. This work reports a comparison of several lowscaling approximations ... 
On the difference between the transition properties calculated with linear response and equation of motionCCSD approaches
(AIP Publishing, 20091102)In this work, we quantitatively investigate the difference between the linear response (LR) and the equation of motion (EOM) coupled cluster (CC) approaches in the calculation of transition properties, namely, dipole and ... 
Electronic excitation energies in solution at equation of motion CCSD level within a state specific polarizable continuum model approach
(AIP Publishing, 20100223)We present a study of excitation energies in solution at the equation of motioncoupled cluster singles and doubles (EOMCCSD) level of theory. The solvent effect is introduced with a state specific polarizable continuum ... 
A variational formulation of the polarizable continuum model
(AIP Publishing, 20100707)Continuum solvation models are widely used to accurately estimate solvent effects on energy, structural and spectroscopic properties of complex molecular systems. The polarizable continuum model (PCM) is one of the most ... 
Link atom bond length effect in ONIOM excited state calculations
(AIP Publishing, 20100805)We investigate how the choice of the link atom bond length affects an electronic transition energy calculation with the socalled our own Nlayer integrated molecular orbital molecular mechanics (ONIOM) hybrid method. This ... 
Brueckner doubles coupled cluster method with the polarizable continuum model of solvation
(AIP Publishing, 20110628)We present the theory and implementation for computing the (free) energy and its analytical gradients with the Brueckner doubles (BD) coupled cluster method in solution, in combination with the polarizable continuum model ... 
CCSDPCM: Improving upon the reference reaction field approximation at no cost
(AIP Publishing, 20110811)The combination of the coupled cluster (CC) method with the polarizable continuum model (PCM) of solvation requires a much larger computational effort than gas phase CC calculations, since the PCM contribution depends ...
