thanks for advise. As I understood for the usage of virtual sites in
typical protein-water system I should
(1) define all hydrogens as the virtual atoms (2) increase atom masses of
the hydrogens presented in the water, COOH NH2 OH and SH as well as polar
groups (3) make virtual sites for the angles and dihedrals of peptide bond
as well as sidechains.
Also I've noticed that (1) and (2) can be done with the pdb2gmx with
options -vsite and -heavyh respectfully. From this point its not quite
clear for me
(1) should I make some corrections in topology for dihedrals? In the manual
6.7 I've found some suggestions for the dihedrals of the different
(2) should I define VSITES for solvent molecules filled into the box by
the genbox ?
(3) As I understood the inclusion of the VSITES for hydrogens would allow
me to increase timestep up to 5-8fs. What possible negative side-effects
of the inclusion of VSITES might occur in simulation ?
