1. Make sure your index groups are correctly constructed.
Do I need to use make ndx? I thought just adding energygrps=protein surface
at the end of .mdp is enough?
2. What does 5 nm correspond to? A COM distance? A minimum distance? If
the latter, then the LJ-SR energy should likely be zero, but if it's a COM
distance, that's not necessarily the case.
5 nm is minimum distance
3. Is your PE model united-atom or all-atom? If the latter, you still have
partial charges that will contribute to a negative Coul-SR (of course, this
is something you can check very simply
It is all atom
