I understand that; I'm trying to get you to think a little bit about the
chemistry. What are the titratable groups and what are their pKa
values? Does a +2 net charge make sense? This would be pretty uncommon
for any small molecule that is considered an inhibitor/ligand for a protein.

Look at the geometry - is there a problem? Has the PDB file you're
supplying for GNP been modified in any way? Does it visualize
properly? I doubt an experimental assignment of a 0.56-nm bond would be
made when it should be on the order of 0.16 nm or so.
