Thanks Justin, pervious experiments were not with Urea but I'll try
extending the simulation time further to 10 - 20ns and hopefully that will
do it re: seeing denaturation. Thanks again,

500 ps is not nearly enough time to see anything relevant happening,
independent of whatever conditions you're using.  The effects of simple
thermal denaturation should be evident even within 10-20 ns, but everything
you see is also a function of the force field and the quality of the urea
