Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Adsorption of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein on Polystyrene Surface

Mehdi Sahihi* and Jordi Faraudo
A prominent feature of coronaviruses is the presence of a large glycoprotein spike (S) protruding from the viral particle. The specific interactions of a material with S determine key aspects such as its possible role for indirect transmission or its suitability as a virucidal material. Here, we consider all-atom molecular dynamics simulations of the interaction between a polymer surface (polystyrene) and S in its up and down conformations.
