Thank you, this is a part of a peptide, attached is the whole peptide structure ...

It's not really even a complete lysine, and the attachment is a bit
unusual. The proximity of the ring oxygen, the anomeric oxygen and
the nitrogen -- all just one carbon removed from each other -- might
make good parameterization tricky. I'll think about it a while and
ask around in the group. I'll get back to you.
