Thanks for your reply. I just came across one article which uses Fe2+ ion
in the active site and as you mentioned they have used phorpherin structure
to mimic the Fe2+ parameterzation but nothing mentioned explecitily other
parameters details. They have used Amber molecular suit for their
simulation. So I don't know how to verify their parameters with my setup
now I am using zn2+ parameters for Fe2+.
