Coarse-grained Simulations of Myosin-VII Inhibition using FFEA

Myosin-VII is part of the Myosin family of motor proteins. It has a key role in the operation of biological structures in the eye and inner ear. Unfortunately, the dynamics of Myosin-VII and its inhibition are poorly-understood. This article details my use of FFEA (Fluctuating Finite Element Analysis), a coarse-grained continuum simulation package, to model the motion of Myosin-VII, and understand its inhibition behaviour.

For the presentation that corresponds to this report, see: Will it Bend?
