then,I can use  PRODRG server to generate .top and .gro files for drug.
since it's reported charges are not very accurate ,we can replace all
charges completely with them in 53A6(if was present).
But it means we are working in 53A6 force field.
then,we must generate .top and .gro files for our protein with 53A6 too.
and work completely with 53A6.
Am i right?
thanks in advance
