Subject: AMBER: Dihedral Angle Parameters

Dear AMBER users,

I realized that the amber dihedral parameters are symmetric; the torsional
energy vs angle has a symmetric character. Is it reasonable to create
dihedral parameters for a particular dihedral angle such that it will have
an asymmetric torsional energy function in amber force field? Thanks in
