The exopolysaccharide Infernan, from the bacterial strain GY785, has a complex repeating unit of nine monosaccharides established on a double-layer of sidechains. A cluster of uronic and sulfated monosaccharides confers to Infernan functional and biological activities. We characterized the 3-dimensional structures and dynamics along Molecular Dynamics trajectories and clustered the conformations in extended two-fold and five-fold helical structures. The electrostatic potential distribution over all the structures revealed negatively charged cavities explored for Ca2+ binding through quantum chemistry computation. The transposition of the model of Ca2+complexation indicates that the five-fold helices are the most favourable for interactions. The ribbon-like shape of two-fold helices brings neighbouring chains in proximity without steric clashes. The cavity chelating the Ca2+ of one chain is completed throughout the interaction of a sulfate group from the neighbouring chain. The resulting is a ‘junction zone’ based on unique chain-chain interactions governed by a heterotypic binding mode.
