Thanks for the suggestion.
Bit I think that kind of constraints will fix the atoms at the interface, denying then to interact.
I need those atoms not fixed but interacting and obeying a NCS constraint.
One possibility is to use
by defining a PDB file that contain amino acids at the interface fix (e.g by adding 1 to temperature factor col)

I have a doubt and I am interested in the opinion of the more experts molecular dynamics people.
I have already successful build a dimeric protein by homology modeling using Non Crystallographic Symmetry (NCS), i.e., the both monomers are identical. The A aminoacid from subunity 1 contact the B aminoacid of subunity 2 and vice-versa.
NCS is quite common in the proteins of this family.
After modeling step, I tried to minimize and equilibrate the structure by NAMD.
The output *.coord file shows different kinds of contacts and they do not obey the NCS.
My question is: Is there a way to run the simulation making NAMD consider the NCS on atom position and electrostatic interactions?
If the answer is yes, How do I do it on the script????
Thanks for any help.
