[gmx-users] ELNEDIN disulfide bridge

There no specific term associated with di-sulfide bridge in ElNeDyn.  
It is
however recommended to use a cutoff for the Elastic network of 0.9 nm.
The two Backbone beads are certainly within that distance so it is  

Nevertheless to include the disulfide bridge explicitly you should add a
bond in your topology between the two side chain beads. The same force
constant as in regular Martini should be used. The changes between  
ElNeDyn and
Martini relate to other things.
