Thank you Carlos. I'm actually trying to reproduce the monoprotonated cases of this work.
I have found prep and frcmod files for saquinavir and indinavir from
but the inhibitors come in parts and I couldn't yet figure out how to use them.
I'm going to do charge calculations using R.E.D (gamess/RESP).
For the dihedrals I have read something in Thomas Steinbrecher's Dissertation. Reads as follows:
(Derive all other forcefield params first.)
Then do two calculations:
Calculate energy profile for the rotation around the single bond with QM and fixed dihedral angles in constant portions.
Then calculate the energy profile with same dihedral angles with the molecular mechanics force field setting the params of the dihedral angle to zero.
Subtract both energy profiles form each other and choose params for the dihedral ange to fit the energy profiles difference.
Do you know any literature or implementation on this method or dihedral param derivation in general?
Another thing, I tried to answer this post "query regarding resp" and instead of my post, these post appeared on the list:
Osmar Norberto de Souza Resposta automática de Ausęncia temporária: [AMBER] query regarding resp
Paul Mortenson Out of Office AutoReply: [AMBER] query regarding resp
Laura VanZant Out of Office AutoReply: [AMBER] query regarding resp
So, somebody must be on holiday - I don't get it. Maybe you can help me with that.
