Thank you for explanation. Tomorrow I'll try to check results of simulation
with the disres applied with its default values as well as with narrower
-disre_dist values ( ignorring -disre_frac option at all ) and post here
results of such simulations.
1) The cut-off distance wich I've specified was defined with the genrest
comand with the -cutoff 1.0 flag. Finally all restrains were apllied on the
backbone atoms of alpha helices of the Transmembrane domain of my protein
wich I've defined in the index.ndx file. So all loops of my protein were
not-restrained at all.
Also I have some small question about size of output edr file. I've
noticed that size of this files of such simulations (with the disres
applied as well as with the -pd flag ) is a very big ( 10-15 gb) Why this
occurs and how I could fix it?
thanks again for help,
