Re: AMBER: Specific/Non-specific dihedral issue in Amber

For example: The following entry for cytosine (RC) involving atoms O4'
 C4' C3' H3' (atom types:OS CT CT H1)

      27: 0.250 0.00 1.0 O4' C4' C3' H3' (10,8,25,26)
     28: 0.156 0.00 3.0 O4' C4' C3' H3' (10,8,25,26)

Again for H4' C4' C3' O3' (atom types: H1 CT CT OS)
      34: 0.250 0.00 1.0 H4' C4' C3' O3' (9,8,25,31)
     35: 0.156 0.00 3.0 H4' C4' C3' O3' (9,8,25,31)

Numbers in brackets indicates the atom numbers implying that we are
talking about the exact same atoms.

In both the instances above, the parm99.dat contains a single entry
for specifically H1-CT-CT-OS:
H1-CT-CT-OS 1 0.25 0.0 1. Junmei et al, 1999

The other non-specific entry in parm99.dat matching H1-CT-CT-OS is X -CT-CT-X :
X -CT-CT-X 9 1.40 0.0 3. JCC,7,(1986),230

So, this lead me to ask - why is the non-specific dihedral included
when we have already found a match to a specific dihedral.

Thanks,
Narayanan
