Dear all,
    I think maybe the simulation of membrane is more difficult than systems 
in water. I have insterted one helix into 127 popc lipids which was 
downloaded from Dr. Peter Tieleman's homepage. However, the deformation of 
the system(lipid+water+helix) is big whether I used NPT or NVT method with 
different parameters from mail list and references. The system changed from 
a cuboid into a cylinder, water penetrated into the hydrophobic region of 
lipids, and the tails of boundary lipids tilted from the z axis. I could 
not find a set of proper parameters to keep the system in origin 
formation(cuboid). All the pdb files from Dr. Peter Tieleman's homepage are 
cuboid, but how can I keep that in my simulation? Any information is 
appreciated. Especially, I hope that someone who have successfully 
simulated the bilayer lipids will show his *.mdp file on this mail list.

Thanks in advance
