Dear Pankaj and amber users,
I am doubt if the GBtotal is the free energy or the enthalpy, as GBtotal did not take the TdeltaS into consideration? Am I correct?
Best regards,

Dear Amber Community,
I am running decomposition energy calculations for one protein-ligand complex using mm_pbsa. The protein has 389 residues. The run went on fine. Total GBTOTAL is same as that from binding energy calculation.
>From the data, it seems that the last residue no. 389 is contributing the most (-34.8) in the total energy (-78.8), although this residue is far away from active site. I am confused, how one residue can contribute almost 40% of the binding energy, even if it is not a part of active site. I have plotted the delta_energy results against residue number. I am attaching the two plots, one with last residue included and the other with the last one omitted. I am also attaching the final output file from DC run ˇ§snapshot_statistics.outˇ¨.
Could you please tell me, if I am missing something in the data interpretation?
Thanks and Regards
