Is the potential energy still going down, despite the rupture of the QM region?
Input is same for EM and MD, and the fact that you can perform QM/MM dynamics looks promising. Are you using constraints ?
What happens if you do 100 steps of CG, using jus MM,but all other parameters the same?
Well, the QM/MM dynamics for this protein goes well (except the fact that
one CH3 group in the QM part rotates, i.e. is not equilibrated well).
I have optimized this structure in gaussian using quite high-level QM/MM.
So there must not be any problems with this structure, I used it for a
number of purposes.
Should be there something different in the QM/MM files for optimization
and dynamics? Maybe something is just calculated wrongly, because in the
end (after 100 steps of cg minimzation) the whole protein just tears
apart, so it is definitely not the problems with the structure.
