Newbie's question

Dear all

I am a protein crystallographer with interest in MDS. Since we don't have any computational biologist in the department, I want to ask a few basic questions.

I have the structures of two membrane proteins (protein C and D) and one soluble protein (protein B). Protein A can interact with protein C or D through protein B. The protein D also has a domain similar to protein B. Therefore I am interested in knowing why the protein A can't interact directly with protein D.

1. Is NAMD the right tool to answer this question?
2. If so, do I need anything else apart from the crystal structures?
3. How much computational resource is needed?

Thank you.
