Subject: AMBER: About mm_pbsa calculation setting up

Date: Thu May 11 2006 - 21:19:03 CDT

Dear Amber Community: I have one question regarding the setting up of the file in order to calculate the binding free energy from a
trajectory. I have read that the mm_pbsa analisys is performed to a molecular
dynamic run in which the solvent is explicitly present. Also that the water
molecules (and also ions) should be stripped out to perform this analysis. I
found in the file in the examples that in order to calculate the
binding energy the prmtop files should be indicated. Here is that my first
question arises: should be these prmtop files belong to the whole system, that
is the file containing waters and ions?. If this is affirmative, do I need to
create the prmtop files for the ligand and the macromolecule in the same
Thanks in advance for the hints,
All the best
