New research is concerned with charge transport in peptides and proteins over long distance. Experimental finding shows that reactivity follows the charge transport in the protein with very high efficiency. This represents the long range, distal transport of reactivity, in contrast to local theories of reactivity. Theoretical studies with detailed new molecular dynamics calculations complement experimental work performed to substantiate this model together with DFT modeling. In addition ZEKE experiments are still a main topic of research.
