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.

It is possible to choose the entire complex or simply the protein or ligand, to color the structure in various ways, and to choose how it is best represented e.

This will allow us to extract the entropy for each atom and thus, for the frame. We also have a trouble-shooting page, where there are some tips on how to use antechamber programs efficiently and properly.

So we need to specify these for our SIN unit using set command. This command reads in sustiva. The workflow for preparing parameter files for non-standard residues is shown below: The Langevin dynamics should be used to control the temperature using a collision frequency of 1. Navigation menu Personal tools Log in.

Using constant pressure with restraints can also cause problems so initially we will run 20 ps of MD at constant volume. Below, we antechambe the results for the average entropy of 80 frames framethe one we have been using so far, and the other 79 antechamher we didn’t use for the sake of simplicityas a function of the bin size and the number of trajectory points used for the analysis.


Topology files are needed for the receptor, ligand, and receptor-ligand complex. The output file- tp. Sometimes you may need run it several times to achieve your aim. Below are the commands we need to perform in Antechamber: At the same time, now we are K we can safely remove the restraints on our protein. In order to ensure this happens without any wild fluctuations in our solute we will use a weak restraint, as we did in stage 1 of the minimization, on the solute DNA atoms. Tktorial in Antechamber 1.

Tutorial & Examples

The smooth transitions in this plot followed by the oscillations about a mean value suggest our equilibration has been successful. We are generating random initial velocities from a Boltzman distribution and only read in the coordinates from the inpcrd. A program that reads in force field, topology and coordinate information and produces the files necessary for production calculations i. Hold the protein fixed. We also use this as the reference structure with which to restrain the protein to:.

There are two versions of this program, a graphical interface called xleap and a terminal interface called tleap. In the following, we list the usage of the programs in the antechamber package circa ; for more recent information see the AmberTools Manual ; for the latest information execute the tuutorial with the -h option.

Let’s look at our frcmod file:. There are five options of “-j” flag.

Also verify that the file names are correct. In this situation we are interested in the backbone of our protein so we shall consider just the main backbone atoms, C, CA, and N. To see a correspondence between atom names and 3D structure we shall label atoms in the Xleap unit xntechamber. Our final structure looks like this pph-for-resp.

Since minimization is generally very quick with respect to the molecular dynamics it is often a good thtorial to run more minimization steps than really necessary. Here is the input file:. The potential energy, and consequently the total energy, initially decreased and then plateaued for the remainder of our simulation 40 to ps indicating that the relaxation was completed and that we reached an equilibrium.

For speed we will do this very rapidly over 1ps.

In order to extract frames from the previous simulation, we can use the Ptraj utility, antecha,ber comes in AmberTools. Now we can run the Gaussian G03 program: Hold the protein fixed DAT -s 2 -j 1 Running: They do not necessarily provide the optimal choice of parameters or methods for the particular application area.

To make our task easier we shall download file pph-and-sep-in-protein. The output from tleap shows a few warnings, which can be safely ignored in this case! In this case we will restrain the DNA with a force constant of 10 angstroms.

The program halts if the bond type assignment is successful. If this is the case then we will have to specify any missing parameters before we can create our prmtop and rst7 files in LEaP. With this antechamber and leap can generate parameter hutorial.
