Subject: Re: [AMBER] Possibility to use ff99 + GAFF + GLYCAM_06 in one time for complex system ?

thank you very much for your complex and valuable answer !
Just for the curiosity, is this discussed combination:
GLYCAM_06 + ff99SB + GAFF
remarkably better solution than only:
ff99SB + GAFF
I mean if GAFF forcefield is able to parametrise maltose (I think it is),
it is still
worth to add also GLYCAM ff in my case (considering also that little
problem with different
scaling factors) ?
