Since MM-PBSA is a implicit solvent method, you should delete solvent water
walecule (you can keep water molecule which are present in binding pocket
etc and mediating ligand binding)
When using MM-PBSA, the surface tension coefficient is 0.00542 with a
correction term 0.92. However, when doing MM-GBSA, the surface tension
coefficient with amber charges is 0.0072.
