Re: AMBER: one question on MD

It's impossible to answer. We don't know whether your initial
structure should be stable- is it an experimental structure?
We also don't know what force field you are using, what
solvent model, or what simulation paramters such as temperature.
You didn't say how you performed the equilibration phase.
Try to give us more info and we can help, but remember that
we are here to help with problems related to Amber. You
might have to read journal articles to find out about what kinds
of simulations work well for the research that you want to do..
