Molecular dynamics simulations have been used to examine the process of ligand binding and dimerization of vancomycin. The spontaneous formation of vancomycin-ligand complexes, back-to-back and face-to-face dimers was observed. This has allowed a detailed analysis of the origin of the cooperatively between ligand binding and dimerization and suggests that the formation of face-to-face dimers could be functionally significant
