Abstract Mixed quantum mechanics and molecular mechanics (QM/MM) techniques, wherein the active site is treated with a robust ab initio quantum mechanics methodology and the remainder of the protein is modeled at the molecular mechanics level, offer a valuable tool for looking inside enzymes. We present here a short summary of recent QM/MM applications. We discuss the capabilities of this technology focusing in the main three steps when modeling enzymes: building a model, conformational sampling, and mapping the chemical process. © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
