Title: Microelectronic Circuit Analogous to Hydrogen Bonding Network in Active Site of B-lactamase
Keywords: Hydrogen bonding network, behavioral modeling, Matlab, Verilog-A, proteins

Abstract: A microelectronic circuit of block-elements functionally analogous to two hydrogen bonding networks is investigated. The hydrogen bonding networks are extracted from β-lactamase protein and are formed in its active site. Each hydrogen bond of the network is described in equivalent electrical circuit by three or four-terminal block-element. Each block-element is coded in Matlab. Static and dynamic analyses are performed. The resultant microelectronic circuit analogous to the hydrogen bonding network operates as current mirror, sine pulse source, triangular pulse source as well as signal modulator.
