I know this is a CHARMM question but I am having trouble finding
information on this.
I am wondering if anyone here has experience with HEME-cystiene Fe thiol
or Fe-HIS simulation. I recently build a parameter and top file with a new
residue "HEC" which is a combination of the HEME and cysteine as a single
residue. I took most of the HEME parameters from the CHARMM Heme streaming
Everything looks fine except the HEME seems to flex a little. Looks a
little like a "V" Maybe 140-160 deg instead of 180 degrees across the
heme. I have heard that there are some parameters to take from the PRES
SUL patch in the HEME topar streaming file. I have taken and modified the
relevant ones but I was wondering if anyone knows specifically, what would
cause the heme to be less than ideal planar.
Thank you for your help.
