Subject: AMBER: Backbone & Sidechain atoms: Definition

I read from the Amber mailing list that N, H, C, O, CA, and HA (and
HA2,3) are considered "backbone"....

I know it sounds silly, but I would just like to confirm that H1,H2,H3
on the Nterm are considered "sidechain"?

Thanks in advance for any help!
