Hi everyone,

I’m trying to setup topologies for OPLS-aa simulations with GPCRs. When running pdb2gmx in gromacs 5.1.4 (and gromacs 2016) the total charge of a specific GPCR ends up at 2.435e. Running gromacs 4.6.7 results in the same protonation, but a more reasonable integer charge of 3e.

I have investigated the issue, and it seems that the difference is stemming from differing atom charges in the HISE residue in aminoacids.rtp. If I sum up the atom charges in HISE (5.1.4) I find that it actually is charged by -0.113e, which exatly corresponds to the difference in the reported charge from pdb2gmx (5 HISE * -0.113).

Is this a known problem?
