Fwd: AMBER: How to calculate the mmpbsa for explicit MD ?

Dear *Thomas Steinbrecher*

Thank you for your kind answer but I am still confused about MM-PBSA script
that you say strips waters and counterions from the trajectorie. Please
explain in more specific details or how I can do with this script.

Best regards

Jitrayut

MM-PBSA always contains an implicit solvent step in the calculation of
solvation free energies, so I assume you mean running an MM-PBSA
calculation on trajectories generated from a simulation with explicit
waters. Therefore you need to prepare parameter files for your receptor,
ligand and complex without water molecules. The MM-PBSA script strips
waters and counterions from your trajectories so you need those parameter
files to run on your snapshots.

I would assume the error comes from starting a sander calculation on a
'naked' receptor with the parameter file of the solvated receptor.

Regards,

Thomas
