Title: Behavioral Model of Hydrogen Bonding Network for Digital Signal Processing
Keywords: Hydrogen bonding network, behavioral modeling, Verilog-a, proteins, β-lactamase;

Abstract: A circuit schematic is extracted from β-lactamase protein hydrogen bonding network. The circuit is consisting of block-elements that functionally represent the hydrogen bonds. The behavioral description of each block element is represented by polynomials. Polynomials and electric connections between the elements are coded in Matlab and Verilog-A. DC, transient, and digital analyses are performed. Simulations proved that the circuit can process digital signals and behaves similarly to current mirror, amplifier, and inverter.
