Have anyone tried using CHARMM36 equilibrated POPE bilayer by Dr.Klauda
I am planning to use the membrane patch for a transmembrane protein
simulation. At first visualization, the membrane patch consists of a
bilayer with a single layer of water and then several lipids sticking out
from the opposite side of the water. So I presumed that to be an effect of
How can I correct this in Gromacs?
I've generated a .tpr for the system to use trjconv to manipulate the PBC
Out of all the combinations of pbc treatments, this one works:
trjconv -f pope80-c36box.gro -o pope80_pbc10.gro -s pope80.tpr -pbc mol
This puts the center of mass of the molecules in the box so I got a lipid
bilayer with a single, thick layer of water.
then followed by
trjconv -f pope80_pbc10.gro -o pope80_pbc11.gro -s pope80.tpr -pbc mol
to center the membrane on POPE.
The result looks fine (a hydrated bilayer) but I'm a new user to Gromacs so
I just wanted to ask if the workflow is reasonable.
