Abstract: Replica exchange molecular dynamics (REMD) simulation provides an efficient conformational sampling tool for the study of protein folding. In this study, we explore the mechanism directing the structure variation from α/4β-fold protein to 3α-fold protein after mutation by conducting REMD simulation on 42 replicas with temperatures ranging from 270 K to 710 K. The simulation began from a protein possessing the primary structure of GA88 but the tertiary structure of GB88, two G proteins with “high sequence identity.” Albeit the large Cα-root mean square deviation (RMSD) of the folded protein (4.34 Å at 270 K and 4.75 Å at 304 K), a variation in tertiary structure was observed. Together with the analysis of secondary structure assignment, cluster analysis and principal component, it provides insights to the folding and unfolding pathway of 3α-fold protein and α/4β-fold protein respectively paving the way toward the understanding of the ongoings during conformational variation.
