Chemically, there is never an H atom on the C-terminal carbonyl of a group
involved in a peptide bond. If you parameterized a molecule that was protonated
in such a way, it will give an erroneous output. You can't just delete atoms,
and shifting the charge by adding it back somewhere else is also very suspect,
because you're changing the electronic nature of the compound.
I would say you need a better parameterization protocol using a more suitable

>> Hi dear gmx friends,
>>> I got the parameters of formyl-valine through the CHARMM website. Now I need to define it as a new residue FVAL( as Justin suggested me earlier) in .rtp file. To set the correct charges for atoms, I used the CHARMM output. In order to define FVAL to rtp file, I added these lines as below:
>>> CN C 0.349 0
>>> ON O -0.494 1
>>> H1 HC 0.100 2
>>> N NH1 -0.423 3
>>> HN H 0.09 4
>>> CA CT1 0.144 5
>>> HA HB 0.09 6
>>> CB CT1 -0.097 7
>>> HB HA 0.09 8
>>> CG1 CT3 -0.268 9
>>> HG11 HA 0.09 10
>>> HG12 HA 0.09 11
>>> HG13 HA 0.09 12
>>> CG2 CT3 -0.268 13
>>> HG21 HA 0.09 14
>>> HG22 HA 0.09 15
>>> HG23 HA 0.09 16
>>> C C 0.209 17
>>> O O -0.395 18
>>> As you see I omitted the H connected to Carboxyl. Now the total charge of the new-defined residue is not zero (-0.333) . How can I correct it?
