Abstract

RESP atomic charges embedded in force field libraries for the N-Acetyl-O-methyl-L-tyrosine-N'-methylamide dipeptide (or ACE-TYM-NME capped amino acid), as well as for the central, (+)NH3-terminal and (-)OOC-terminal fragments of the O-methyl-L-tyrosine amino acid. All atom force field libraries suitable for MD simulations using the Cornell et al. AMBER force field (and/or its successive adaptations: Kollman et al., Cheatham et al., Wang et al. & Hornak et al. force fields). Two conformations for N-Acetyl-O-methyl-L-tyrosine-N'-methylamide close to that found in the α-helix and/or β-sheet secondary structures were considered in the procedure. Charge derivation and force field library building for the central fragment of O-methyl-L-tyrosine (or TYM fragment) were carried out by using N-Acetyl-O-methyl-L-tyrosine-N'-methylamide, and setting two intra-molecular charge constraints to a value of zero for the ACE and NME residues during the charge fitting step. Charge derivation and force field library building for the N-terminal fragment of O-methyl-L-tyrosine (or NTYM fragment) were performed by using two molecules: methylammonium and N-Acetyl-O-methyl-L-tyrosine-N'-methylamide, and setting two different constraints to a value of zero during the fitting step: (i) an inter-molecular charge constraint between the methyl group of methylammonium and the CH3CO-NH group of atoms of the capped amino acid, and (ii) an intra-molecular charge constraint for the NME residue of the capped amino acid. Charge derivation and force field library building for the C-terminal fragment of O-methyl-L-tyrosine (or CTYM fragment) were carried out by using two molecules: acetate and N-Acetyl-O-methyl-L-tyrosine-N'-methylamide, and setting to a value of zero two different constraints during the fitting step: (i) an inter-molecular charge constraint between the methyl group of acetate and the CO-NHCH3 group of atoms of the capped amino acid, and (ii) an intra-molecular charge constraint for the ACE residue of the capped amino acid (Scheme 1).

Geometry optimization, frequency calculation and molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) computation were carried out using the Gaussian 03 program, while charge fitting was performed using the RESP program. For all the structures, the HF method and the 6-31G* basis set in gas phase were used in geometry optimization and frequency calculation. MEP computation was carried out using the HF/6-31G* theory level in gas phase, and the Connolly surface algorithm. The molecular orientation of each optimized structure was controlled using the rigid-body re-orientation algorithm implemented in the R.E.D. program. Four molecular orientations for N-Acetyl-O-methyl-L-tyrosine-N'-methylamide (based on the ACE carbonyl carbon, TYM carbonyl carbon, TYM carbonyl oxygen atoms; TYM carbonyl oxygen, TYM carbonyl carbon, ACE carbonyl carbon atoms; ACE carbonyl oxygen, TYM carbonyl oxygen, NME nitrogen atoms; NME nitrogen, TYM carbonyl oxygen, ACE carbonyl oxygen atoms), and two molecular orientations for methylammonium (based on the methyl carbon, nitrogen, gauche+ nitrogen hydrogen atoms; gauche+ nitrogen hydrogen, nitrogen, methyl carbon atoms) and acetate (based on the methyl carbon, carboxylate carbon, terminal oxygen atoms; terminal oxygen, carboxylate carbon, methyl carbon atoms)] were involved in MEP computation. A RRMS (relative root mean square value between the MEP values calculated by quantum mechanics, and those generated using the derived charge values) of 0.049 was obtained for the fitting step. See the F-23 up to F-44 R.E.DD.B. projects as well. The present project contains the F-23, F-24, F-25, F-29 and F-33 projects.
