Abstract

We make a survey of resistance of 7510 proteins to mechanical stretching at constant speed as studied within a coarse-grained molecular dynamics model. We correlate the maximum force of resistance with the native structure, predict proteins which should be especially strong, and identify the nature of their force clamps.
