[gmx-users] Simulation explodes (protein-ligand-protein)

We have a problem with a protein-ligand-protein simulation. It is a somewhat
large system (approx. 360 amino acid residues with approx. 70 monosaccharides),
that requires a larger box for proper simulation.
We used exclusions (especifically for the problematic atoms) and restrictions
(tested values of 5000, 2000, 1000 - for backbone and for monosaccharides),
both combined and individually, and when they were kept for the entire
simulation, it went just fine. But when these restrictions and exclusions were
removed, the glycan portion, that isn’t connected to any of the proteins
Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance,
