[gmx-users] cyclic peptide dynamics. peptidic bond

I have been changing manually all the topology files
(from the bonds, angles ecc...) but I constantly find
fatal errors during the minimization (example: atoms
do not match, ecc..). I guess that it is really demanding
and difficult to change manually the topology file to have
gromacs recognizing a peptide bond that cyclize a protein.

You have to set the bonded terms correctly your self: bond, angles,
dihedrals, improper. Besides, you may have to list the 1-4 interactions
under the [ pairs ] section. Check the manual on topologies in case you're
not sure what I'm talking about. By the way, you could take an approach like
this: if A is your N-terminal residue and B is you're C-terminal residue,
you need a B-A peptide bond. Create the topology (using pdb2gmx) for such a
dipeptide and copy the terms for all inter-aa interactions to your cyclic
peptide topology, renumbering the atoms as required.
