Re: [AMBER] Parameters for HYP and CGU

Hi Dr. Jason Swails,

Based on you suggestion, I just did everything in the tutorial, meanwhile, I adopt some dihedral parameters from .frcmod in the amber package. Now, my problem has been solved! I know people use gossan03 to calculate the charges, but here I just use antechamber to do this job instead. I donot know my calculation can be accurate to my simulation or not.

Thanks for your suggestion!

When AmberTools 1.3 is released (I believe in a week or two), it will
have a file all_amino08.lib that has parameters for hydroxyproline.

However, for CGU, (gamma carboxy glutamate? that's what a google
search told me), there is no such file.  However, you can follow the
sustiva tutorial ( ) on creating your own
custom residues to teach you how to create an frcmod file from gaff
and/or the Amber force field.

This method can also be used for HYP, of course, if you're so
inclined.  The tutorial and manual should help you get this figured

Good luck!
