Re: [gmx-users] Help in parametrisation

Thanks for the reply.
Sorry to say but I chose the GROMOS force field as for that topology of the ligands could be prepared by PRODRG and I followed tutorials available for Gromacs and most of them used GROMOS forcefield and for starting, parameters used in the tutorials helped me to create .mdp file for my problem.
I may be wrong in such choice of forefield.
I tried yesterday installing Amber utility for gromacs but when I tried to generate topology of protein with Mangnese, It was giving same error as Mn is not present in its database as also mentioned in the following website http://ffamber.cnsm.csulb.edu/.
Any help ?
I am really thankful to you for ur time and patience.

Assuming a transition metal "may" be similar to another species is probably a pretty poor assumption. Prepare for lots of criticism if you proceed with that thought.

Refer to the other GROMOS papers for how they derive parameters for small molecules. I've never seen a demonstration of transition metal parameterization under these force fields, though. Perhaps you should be using an AMBER force field that contains Mn2+. Any particular reason you think you need GROMOS?

Please pay careful attention to the second paragraph here:

If this choice of force field is correct for such type of study ?

> Aside from telling you to read all the literature you can, there's not much more help anyone can do to help you. You haven't described very well what your system is. What kind of functional groups are in your ligand? If the functional groups are shared with existing parameters, then you'll have a rather easy time constructing a topology. What type of metal ion is it? If you're dealing with a transition metal, using a standard MM force field may not work very well. Note the "Exotic Species" heading on the page you quoted above.
