The Amber developers have not tested either of these force fields for use
with proteins in organic liquids. You can check the literature to see if
others have carried out such simulations, and what kind of results they
obtained. In all events, you should proceed with caution. That does not
mean, "don't do this"; it means that you should not assume that you have a
"good parameterization" when you move away from water at ambient conditions.
