[…] parameter set for protein molecules, lipid molecules, and salt ions, and the charmm tip3p model for water; protein parameters incorporated cmap terms-. these parameters were assigned using the parmed implementation of chamber, provided with ambertools14. ligand parameters were based on the results from the charmm paramchem web server, version, and incorporated specific […]

[…] unrestrained ntp md simulation was then run for 200 ps with 2 fs steps. the final restart file from this process was used along with a hydrogen mass repartitioned parameter file (modified using parmed) to run new simulations with new randomized atomic velocities using 4 fs steps at 310 k. analysis was carried out using cpptraj. all production simulations were carried out using pmemd.cuda […]

[…] and parmcheck programs []. the aa model is thus described by the general amber force field (gaff) with am1-bcc charges [, ].combining the aa and cg models to a hybrid aa/cg model using the parmed libraries []. a martini aa/cg model consists of the aa model plus the cg model represented as virtual sites (vs) []. the vs sites are mapped on a set of heavy atoms and only interact […]

[…] closeness parameter is iteratively adjusted until the desired d is obtained., three cysteine residues in guanylin were initially assigned to the new cyr type. this new residue type was created using parmed program from the ambertools suite. cyr cysteines are deprotonated and neutral; all parameters of residue type cyr are inherited from the disulfide-bonded type cyx (however, we choose […]

[…] integrator with a 1.0/ps friction coefficient and a (fully) anisotropic monte carlo barostat with a frequency of 25 steps. openmm natively reads the prepared forcefield prmtop files. for gromacs, parmed ( was used to convert the prmtop topology to the gromacs “top” format. gromacs simulations used the velocity-rescaling-with-stochastic-term temperature […]
