Subject: AMBER: mm_pbsa positive ELE

I'm trying to calculate the binding affinity of a complex and its
mutants (I got three mutants. Each of them just change some residue
types which are in biding site). For these mutants, the results of
mm_pbsa seem reasonable, but, for the wild complex, the final ELE value
is positive (final ELE = com-rec-lig). Actually, these ELE values of
individual complex, receptor and ligand look normal. I don't know
whether the non-zero net charge can influence the results. I choose
"Dielectricity constant = 2.0" for all cases. Does anybody can point me

Thanks in advance,

Qi Yan
