Biopolymer Chain Folding and Biomolecular Recognition: A Quantum Decoherence Theory Approach

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper we describe the biopolymer chain folding problem in the framework of the so-called quantum decoherence theory. As we propose a rather qualitative scenario yet bearing generality, it seems this provides promising basis for the solution-in-principle of the (semi) classically hard kinetic problem of biopolymer chain folding from coiled to native conformation in highly selective ligand proteins/target-receptors biomolecular recognition processes, implying underlying macroscopic quantum nonlocality on the level of biological cell.
