It is better to keep conversations on the gmx-user list where I
believe you found much help already.
I looked quickly at your EM.gro file. There several issues that
you should have picked your self quite easily using VMD.
1- there are 3 empty line in your gro file: lines 204, 2253 and 4302.
2- when this fixed and the number of atoms in the second line of
the file changed, I looked at the protein only and noticed very clearly
that your conformation, although looking reasonable overall, has
serious problems. This is clear when looking at the backbone
only. Several portions of your protein have Calpha-Calpha distances
that exceed a reasonable distance (0.42 nm). Note that in the MARTINI
2.1 version the distance is 0.35 nm.
You can visualize them by uploading your corrected EM.gro in VMD
and choosing a "dynamicbonds" representation on the following selected
name "BC*.*" "BH*.*", the missing atoms would appear by repeating
this selection and showing them in CPK.
I picked the following regions but it might be more:
- residues 33-38
- 141-161 (this one is really funky)
This is only where distances appear too long but all over the structure
distances also appeared to short.
In conclusion your protein structure is seriously damaged, this is
not a problem of your protocol but your atomistic starting structure.
should check it and fix it before going further in the simulation.
This should help.
