RE: AMBER: new residue

Thank you Kristina for your reply.
I already identified the haed and the tail of my residue and set up the
frcmod file.
The pdb file of the polymer looks fine when I load it in VMD.
I expect my monomer structure (into the polymer) to be planar. In Xleap,
the residue is palanar when I load it as a monomer but it is not the
case within a polymer. I have to mention here that my polymer pdb file
is created by another program. Is there a mismatch between the Xleap and
the other softwares? Thanks
