I was reading through the (freely available) article on
protein force fields in the "Encyclopedia of Computational
Chemistry" (http://www.mrw.interscience.wiley.com/ecc/) and
noticed the following:
"... Popular water models include the TIP3P and TIP4P models
and the SPC and SPC/E models. Many force fields are designed
to work with a particular water model to obtain a proper
balance between the solvent and solute external interactions.
Using a different water model than that prescribed for a
particular force field may alter this balance. ..."
Does this have any implications for the choice of water model
