Hi Justin (and Geraldine),
I think that cross-referring people asking about building topologies
to the exotic species wiki page by default is a bit too much. It's
Parameterization they need to read (and chapter 5 of the manual).
Exotic species are those weird atoms you sometimes encounter in
ligands/proteins (e.g. Ruthenium). Especially those darned transition
metals. But that doesn't apply to heparin, nor any of to the compounds
asked for lately on the list. Of course people have to be cautioned,
but the help should stick to the facts the question applies to.
O, and heparin has been simulated before. Geraldine, have you already
searched the archive/web/literature? Did you have a force field in
mind? The Prodrg server is a very bad idea (sorry Daan). Just had a
quick look for glucose, and compared the charges with the Gromos 45a3
ones, which have been parameterized with care. Almost scary.
