dear all,
i have a system of six protein-monomers in popc
bilayers, there is a pore inside this hexamers. i want
to study the free energy difference of K in the pore
between mutant and wild-type of this hexamer. i put K
at center of the pore 0 0 0. Then , perform energy
minimization by steepest descent, and cg. However,
after energy minimization , the system is bigger , the
box vector the same . Then i look at the structure by
RasMol the system looks weird. the pore doesn't appear
, the proteins went to the corners of the box,
bilayers of popc also disappear, water in the middle
of popc layer. i remove pbc out using ' editconf -pbc
' , but the system still look the same.
please help me , i just want to get K ion in the local
minimum of this pore.
system size : 13.360 16.203 14.029 (nm)
center : 5.301 5.903 5.029 (nm)
box vectors : 10.803 11.910 11.177 (nm)
