More examples and tutorials are available in other pages. We also have a trouble -shooting page, where there are some tips on how to use antechamber. Amber 10 Tutorial antechamber: strange molecules get parameter files antechamber & leap • antechamber is predominantly a file converter. However, it can be. This section of the tutorial introduces the AMBER programs/tools necessary to set -up the input files .. Let’s try using antechamber on our file.

The output is the entropy of the frame we are studying frame in the present case. We see that the temperature remained more or less constant during the simulation indicating the use of Langevin dynamics for temperature regulation was successful.


If we combine gaff. For the purposes of this tutorial we shall assume that the parameters Antechamber has suggested for us are acceptable. Note, if your system is very inhomogeneous you may need to run short MD runs with smaller time steps, say 0. The Antechamber tool set is designed to allow the rapid generation of topology files for use with the AMBER simulation programs.

IN -f resp2 Running: We are going to run a total of 5, molecular dynamics steps with a time step of 2 fs per step, possible since we are now using SHAKE, to give a total simulation time of 10 ps.

Finally, lets take a look at the density, we expect this to mirror the volume. This means that the water and counter-ions are free to move. Could not find angle parameter: You can safely delete them. Hold the protein fixed. Hence a weak thermostat is often a good idea as it corrects for these errors. As a result of this it is no longer the suggested method.

The second input file for ptraj analysis was called ptraj. We can see that there were a total of 4 missing angle parameters and 4 missing improper dihedrals.

Before we can successfully load our modified pdb file into XLeap we need to tell it what our three non-standard units are. Potential, Kinetic and Total energy Temperature Pressure Volume Density RMSd The following steps will illustrate how to extract this data and plot it and also discuss what we expect to see for a successful equilibration.


Think carefully about how a thermostat will affect your simulation and choose appropriately. It is usful if one wants to quick check the sander minimized structure or the latest MD structure in rst format. C4 And that’s us done. Moreover, since GAFF is totally compatible with the AMBER macromolecular force fields it should prove to be a useful molecular mechanical tool for rational drug design.

We can use ptraj to calculate this for us as a function of time. The file that we are really interested in, and the reason we ran Antechamber in the first place, is the sin. Ideally you should do this for much longer. This force field has been specifically designed to cover aantechamber pharmaceutical molecules and is compatible with the traditional AMBER force fields in such a way that the two can be mixed during a simulation.

This simulation may take considerable amount of time to run, on a single 2. Note, we also no longer need the -ref switch: The -fo prepi states that we want the output file to be of amber PREP format this is an internal format supported by Leap.

Initial simulation:

Crdgrow reads an incomplete pdb file at least three atoms in the file and a prep input file, and then generate a complete pdb file. Now we are going to perform a minimization and equilibration, in order to relax the system. Since these simulations are significantly more computationally expensive than the in vacuo and implicit solvent simulations it is essential that we try to reduce the computational complexity as much as possible. Running too few can lead to instabilities when you start running MD.

Create the necessary topology and coordinate files for non-standard residue

Let’s take a quick look at the file:. If we start we several frames, then the output will be the average entropy of all the frames. Below, in Figure 1, we have a plot of the entropy as a function of the inverse of the bin size, where we see a nice convergence as the size is decreased we should mention that this convergence is obtained only because in the processing we are increasing the size of the bin if the count on that bin is less than In this section we will look at the system properties that can be extracted from the data written to the mdout files during our ps of MD simulation.


So we need to specify these for our SIN unit using set command.

Running too many will not do any real harm since we will just get ever closer to the nearest local minima. But that, in the present system, means waters, but waters are represented in the next part of bellymask. Here, -i means input file name; -fi means input file format; -o means output file name; -fo output file format. There is no need to read velocity before minimization. In this tutorial we are only going to apply the HSMD method to the ligand in this system, so we start by removing from the file the header, the protein part, the crystallographic waters and also the hydrogens in the SB3 residue we’ll put them back later.

Looking inside the script, we see that some parameters need to be fixed, e. We are going to run a total of 50, molecular dynamics steps with a time step of 2 fs per step, possible since we are now using SHAKE, to give a total simulation time of ps.

The next step if to heat the RT-Sustiva complex. Parmchk reads in an ac file or a prep input file or a mol2 file as well as a force field file gaff.

The resulting file is SB3-noH. The resulting topology file, 1cgh-water-box. Then in the second stage we will minimize the entire system.

As a final check we shall load again a fragment of an original pdb file, sin-val. To select everything, double click the LEFT button tutlrial to unselect, do the same while holding down the shift key. Later on we can take a look tuorial Xleap and see what atoms these correspond to. Moreover, since GAFF is totally compatible with the AMBER macromolecular force fields it should prove to be an useful molecular mechanical tool for rational drug design.

Remember though that Antechamber is not a replacement for due diligence. This file will be compared to the reference file 1HVR.
