Re: [AMBER] ligand shift

I have encountered a similar problem.

Iíve conducted several 100ns MD simulations on the same small protein receptor using different non-polar ligands. The results obtained were quite consistent. When I used a ligand with a polar group (de-protonated carboxylate moiety) the ligand flies out of the binding pocket after a few nanoseconds simulation. There is biological evidence that the ligand binds on the receptor.

Any suggestions regarding this behavior would be most welcome.

Regards

George
