Subject: AMBER: regarding PBCAL in MM-PBSA

Dear Amber community,

I was just wondering how one would go about interpretation of PBCAL values (in MMPBSA computations) for receptor and complex. PBCAL for my receptor has a more negative value than PBCAL for the complex. Does this mean that the complex experiences a lower dielectric lattice due to some water molecules replaced by the ligand in the binding site?

best regards,
