-1- read Cieplak et al. Application of the multimolecule and
ulticonformational RESP methodology to biopolymers: Charge derivation
for DNA, RNA, and proteins. J. Comput. Chem. 1995, 16, 1357-1377.
-2- learn how to use R.E.D.-III.x using
-3- use R.E.D. Server with R.E.D.-IV
=> Everybody can generate such a complex force field topology database
where all the computational conditions are defined (orientations,
conformations, QM theory levels, charge fit with a minimum number of
charge constraints, etc...) - & without manual charge "arrangement"...

The difference between 2 protonate states is simply one additional
building block + one additional contraints between two building blocks.

Data are going to be submitted in R.E.DD.B.
You will have a R.E.DD.B. code. (similar to a PDB code)
