The Air-Water Interface Stabilises Alpha-Helical Conformations of the Insulin B-Chain

Using enhanced molecular dynamics simulations the structure of the insulin B-chain was investigated at the air-water interface and in bulk solution. Significant differences in the conformational behaviour between these environments were found, with the air-water interface stabilising the formation of alpha-helical structures.
