The molecular electrostatic potential inside the potassium channel protein from Streptomyces lividans has been investigated using linear scaling semiempirical quantum chemical method, for a variety of geometries, with and without solvating water molecules. The results are compared with those given by a number of popular molecular mechanics force-fields. The difference between the quantum and molecular mechanics electrostatic potentials due to the protein exceeds 30 kcal/mol within the narrow...[Show more]
