Thanks for your response, Professor.

I have checked the energy terms and they are stable even that I didn't
run constanst volume beforehand. And I have used the
default value 1.0 for taup. In fact, the temperature I used is 500K with
constant pressure. Is that necessary to run constant volume to
equilibrate to 500K before I perform constant pressure? I am confused.

I am using AMBER7. There is 90 residues and 5367 waters. And the
solvatebox is done by leap using solvateBox mypdb WATBOX216 10 0.8.

Thanks again,
