Dear amber usersúČ
     I run into a problem while I set up my simulation .There is a iron ion which forms several coordinate bonds with residues of protein.Then,where can I find the parameters of Fe?I have got the parameters of heme.I'm not sure whether that can be used on my system .
    On the other hand,as the purpose of simulation is to optimize the structure modeled from another protein,I have run the simulation without iron ion while I used the "nmropt" to restrain the distance between the residues which form coordinate bonds with iron ion.Can anyone tell me whether it is reasonable or not?
        Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
    Have fun
