Thank you for your input.
1. when attaching the alkyl chain with OH group in the aminoacid, to
represent the bonded term C(aromatic)-O-C (alkyl). i took O as OC301 and
C(alkyl) as CT2. But there is no bonded term for CA-OC301. How to import
this by analogy?
2. Charge of Hydrogen atoms (removed) are balanced over the oxygen and
alkyl carbon is that the right approach?
CZ CA 0.11 18
OB OC301 -0.28 19 ;(in amino acid OH -0.54 HH 0.43)
CH CT2 -0.01 20
HH1 HA 0.09 21
HH2 HA 0.09 22
CI CT2 -0.18 23
HI1 HA 0.09 24
HI2 HA 0.09 25
3. Also i want to add n-terminal capping with carboxybenzyl for the
peptide. If i use CGenFF parameters for the capping alone, how much it will
affect the accuracy?
