Re: AMBER: How to fix two angle but do umberlla sampling for distance?

Your procedure seems OK, you can put various restaint in a simple rst
However, in your restraint file, "iat" is supposed to correspond to the
atom number in your pdb file.
If you want to restraint the distance between the first 2 atoms of your
structure, you should have :
For an angle restraint you should have 3 atoms (ex iat=1,2,3) and 4 for
a dihedral (iat=7,8,9,10)

> # fixed angle restrainst
> &rst iat=4,5,5 r1=-180.0, r2=180.0, r3=180.0, r4=180.0, rk2 = 1000.0, rk3 =

here I don't understand why you write 5,5

> &rst iat=4,5,5,5 r1=0.0, r2=0.0, r3=0.0, r4=360.0, rk2 = 1000.0, rk3 =

look at your PDB and write the good atom numbers. There is no need to
add additional inforamtion on the atom name (at least on AMBER 8.0,
maybe it changed for A9, but I don't see why)

Good lick
