Water and protein surfaces: an unfavorable coexistence


Water is much smaller than most other biological molecules, and still, its peculiar property to form networks of hydrogen bond make the effects of solvation large: large enough to strongly influence many interactions of apolar compounds in water. We argue that the interaction of such hydrophobic molecules in water is determined by a single mechanism, that depends on the energetically unfavorable structure of water networks close to hydrophobic surfaces. We test our hypotheses using a robust physical-organic model, the enzyme human carbonic anhydrase, rationalize thermodynamic and crystallographic results using molecular dynamics, and will present experimental evidence for both enthalpic and entropic hydrophobic effects, and surprising instances of enthalpy-entropy compensation.
