I need to build a palmitoylated cystein. The lipid group and the cysteine
are covalently linked via a thioester linkage. I am facing two different

    1- how to chose the charges on and near the thioester linkage:
    Has anyone described such a chemical group?

    2- If I use the lipid parameters (atom types and LJ) to describe the
palmitoyl moiety then I need to generate the LJ14 "pairs" parameters (since
they do not exist in the forcefieldand grompp assigns a value of zero for
the incriminated LJ14 interactions ). Does anyone know how the values of the
LJ14 parameters are generated?

Thanks for your help

Dear David and Anton,

I am simulating a DPPC bilayer with PME. When I use charge groups, the
halts due to LINCS violation. This problem was solved when I began to use
atom-based charges.
Has anybody experienced similar problems?

Cheers, Pedro.
