Subject: AMBER: replicas trapped in a few low temperatures

Dear Amber usersúČ

I am working on the folding of a small peptide using REMD in Amber 10. Sometimes, a replica finds a low energy conformation, then it is annealed to the lowest temperature. After that, this replica seems to be trapped in a few, maybe two or three, low temperatures, with a high "back exchange" frequency.
It there any suggestions that can make this replica sample more wide temperature space?

Best regards,
