Do you refer to pages 58-61 or 148-149 of the manual, about distance
restraints and NMR refinement?
In that case is still not clear to me if the authors in the cited paper use
simple distance restraints or apply NMR-derived data, given that the model
presented is based on a X-Ray structure.
So, should I define arbitrary Hbond cutoffs instead of NOE distance
Sorry for being insistent but I cannot come through the question.
Thanks in advance
