A forum for discussing the behaviour of water in the living cell

Given what is known about waters active role in the structure, dynamics and function of biomolecules, can it be used as a design element in synthetic molecular and nanoscale structures derived from them, which might have more amenable levels of complexity?...
In a clever study of DNA hydration using SFG spectroscopy, Poul Petersen and his coworkers have found that the chiral spine of hydration in the minor groove, inferred from oxygen locations for hydrated crystalline DNA by Dickerson and collaborators in the 1980s,...
Electrostatic interactions with lipid heads groups retard water molecules near the surface of a membrane. But how are those dynamics affected by a membrane protein? Lars Schfer at the Ruhr University of Bochum and colleagues attempt to answer that question...
