I can't give you your topology file, you'll have to make that yourself.
You could use the ProDrg server (search the list archive or use a general
search engine) to get the impropers right, and then adjust parameters to
For an example of how to define the improper dihedral yourself, you can
take a look at the rtp entries (e.g. ffG43a1.rtp) of the amino acids,
they all (exept gly) have at least a chiral Calpha with corresponding
improper dihedral. Easiest way to change R to S, is to swap the angle
from positive to negative (alternatively, you can swap two atoms).
By the way, I like to keep the discussions on the list. That way, other
people might benefit from it, too, it gets archived, and possibly if
I get something wrong, somebody else can correct me...!
