OK...I didn't notice that you have N atoms on the side chains (if I read your
mail correctly). You can of course add bonds manually in tleap, but if this
is *not* a standard GLU residue, you will need to use antechamber (or
something) to get the charges and force field parameters you will need. You
should still probably break the molecule into residues, but this now sounds
like a fairly complex problem. There are some instructions for creating
non-standard residues at

Remember that all atoms in a given residue must have unique atom names. This
is one reason for trying to keep residues fairly small.
