Re: [AMBER] how to add phosphate group in protein

As you said I generate the new template for phosphoaspartate in mol2 format
using antechamber as well as library for it, then I use this template and
library to change ASP 54 to phosphoaspartate in my PDB file.

This worked and now PDB file have phosphoaspartate but this residue is conneted
at its both ends via TER card.When I visualize this modified PDB it was ok.

But when I minimize this modofied PDB, phosphoaspartate is there but not bonded at
both ends.

Here I have follow the tutorial :-

So where is the problem please suggest me.
