A copy of this file can be found here: The topology file is also provided on the command line so that it may be updated accordingly. Note that the topology file you generated already contains an include statement to include the moleculetype for TIP3P water and for ions, gromafs because there are no water molecules or ions in our coordinate file, they are not yet listed under ‘[ molecules ]’.
It is better to have a slightly larger box size now than to find out later that your protein was interacting with its periodic image during the simulation. In order for it to work, however, it requires a pre-processed input file with extension.

Typing ‘editconf -h’ will display a brief description of its capabilities. In order for the protein to avoid seeing its image across the periodic boundary, it must be at least twice the cut-off distance from the next nearest image of manuzl. Before proceeding to the next step, now is a good time to use your favorite text editor to check for a few things:. Looking back at the topology file, you can see that if ‘POSRES’ is defined when you begin simulation, then these amnual will be included in the molecular topology, thus restraining the backbone of the protein during simulation.

Are there any ligands or non-standard residues present in the PDB file? For example if you have a coordinate file that contains a protein in 10, water molecules, your topology file should look roughly like:. Otherwise, you may need to use other minimization methods such as conjugate gradients or L-BFGS to reach a lower energy well. In the case of 1UBQ, there are many crystal waters. It is important to note that rectangular boxes can be very inefficient, especially for globular proteins like ubiquitin.
The most important question to ask now is why choose 1. The lines in between contain the residue number, residue name, atom name, atom number, and cartesian coordinates in nanometers for each atom in the system. A quick look back at the original PDB file reveals that the four residues at the C-terminus of ubiquitin in 1UBQ were not as well resolved as the rest of the protein.
Nevertheless, it still must be provided on the command line. The only input needed is the coordinate file generated previously. To create a rectangular box around the protein, type:.

Without going into too much detail, non-standard residues are okay so long as grkmacs residue name and atom names conform to the corresponding entry in the residue topology file. Genion then chooses 22 solvent molecules and replaces half with sodium ions, and the other half with chloride ions. If there were, however, you would need to take extra preparation steps beforehand to fix the broken residues before continuing.
Other parameters of note include periodic boundary conditions in the x- y- and z-directions, 0. Aside from that one warning, it appears pdb2gmx changed a few residue names and atom names to conform to the names used in the AMBER The files you need to start this step are:.
The ‘-cp’ flag specifies the coordinate file of the system to be solvated, and ‘-cs spc Ubiquitin is non-enzymatic, though, so the waters are not important for an active site mechanism, manul example. If any of these settings do not make sense, it is unwise to proceed without reading about them in Chapter 7 of the manual. Aside from the coordinate and topology file, ‘grompp’ also requires that you provide a MD parameter file.
See the image below. Choose ’11’ for the potential energy, and hit return on an empty line to finish. In this case, you can use it to check the potential energy of the system as a function of minimization step. For example, if you are simulating a protein in water, you will have two consecutive ‘[ moleculetype ]’ sections. The second manuap is the number of atoms. The command line execution looks like this:. As before, ‘grompp’ is used to generate that file.
By default, only the protein backbone atoms are listed in this file.
Not all of the sections must be present. In the next few steps, you will define a box size for your system, center the protein in the box, solvate, and finally, add counterions gromacx the system.
Prior to running actual dynamics, you will need to perform an energy minimization.
The purpose of a minimization is to relax the molecular geometry of the system in order to get rid of any atomic clashes or other irregularities that may exist.
