Thank you so much Justin.

1. Yes you are correct. control here means default protonation state and
in this case the system charge of +8e is neutralized. I didn't have any
noncanonical pka values (at ph9). Checked with both H++ server and Propka.
For ph 9, I have kept the charge of +8e.

2. Our experimental data suggests that at higher pH (9), the protein
initiates unfolding.

3. I have taken the final structure (at 100ns) of both systems and
superimposed it. I got a RMSD of 1.030 angstrom and no major structural
change was observed.

4. We can consider to extend the simulation to visualize any change, if
above things are correct.

Thank You

Zaved H.
