Thank you for your reply. I am running MD simulations where the protein heavy atoms are frozen, so the side chain cannot rotate. Is the aminoacids.hdb file the only file that affects to which oxygen the proton is attached?

When I tell gmx to add an extra proton, what determines which oxygen atom will be protonated? Is it always attached to OE2, as the aminoacids.hdb file suggests? (I’m using amber03) Is there a way to attach the extra proton to OE1 instead?
