Hi Xu,

This has already been discussed on the mailing list... search using 
lipid and Tieleman as key words.

Hi all,

Marc Baaden's warning about the somewhat unexpected behavior of grompp 
having multiple atomtypes and non-bonded entries applies to using 
too. In the way I set it up, the LJ interaction matrix in the GROMOS 
force fields (ffgmx in this case) is overwritten with standard 
rules. I don't yet know what the effect is of this. It means the force 
isn't used the way it was designed. On the other hand, nearly all 
simulations on membrane proteins with gromacs will have used the 
rules for the protein part instead of the GROMOS values, often without
disastrous consequences.

To use the protein-protein GROMOS LJ parameters, the contents of 
should be copied into the ffgmx* files as Marc described. It should be
possible to test the differences on simulations of high-resolution 
protein structures.
