[gmx-users] MD at different pH

Through the simulation, I am trying to find out if the binding free energy of the drug-protein complex is strong enough for the drug to be a good inhibitor of the protein.
so, does the pH of the simulation matter as in reality the active monomer exists in acidic pH conditions?

That depends on what your scientific goals/questions are and what you are
actually trying to model.
