[gmx-users] problem with phosphorylated serine

Thanks it did work after I added "SEP Protein" to the residuetypes.dat
file. While executing pdb2gmx I found that I am asked to choose the water
model and I choose SPC. Then I got the error that stating that (Error
Program pdb2gmx, VERSION 4.5.4
Source code file: pdb2gmx.c, line: 1879
The topology file 'gromos43a1p.ff/spc.itp' for the selected water model
'spc' can not be found in the force field directory. Select a different

Hence I went and listed the files in the non-phosphorylate and
phosphorylated directories and found that many files in the
non-phosphorylated directory are *not *present in the phosphorylated
directory (given below)
$ ls gromos43a1.ff/
aminoacids.c.tdb *aminoacids.vsd * forcefield.doc *spce.itp*
aminoacids.hdb atomtypes.atp forcefield.itp *spc.itp*
aminoacids.n.tdb ffbonded.itp *ions.itp tip3p.itp*
aminoacids.r2b *ff_dum.itp methanol216.gro* *tip4p.itp*
aminoacids.rtp ffnonbonded.itp *methanol216.gro* watermodels.dat
$ ls gromos43a1p.ff/
aminoacids.c.tdb aminoacids.rtp forcefield.doc watermodels.dat
aminoacids.hdb atomtypes.atp forcefield.itp
aminoacids.n.tdb ffbonded.itp MD5SUM.txt
aminoacids.r2b ffnonbonded.itp README
SO MY QUESTION IS: Is it ok to copy these files that are missing in the
phosphorylated force field directory from the non-phosphorylated
force field directory?
