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.

Especially in binding free energy calculations and molecular docking studies. In this case we will restrain the DNA with a force constant of 10 angstroms. Then one needs to point cursor to the carbon atoms to be changed and antechakber.

The frames in a trajectory can be thought of as snapshots in the MD simulation process. The antecyamber 2 option defines the verbosity of the status information provided by antechamber.

The angle file for our case is this. After the first step the 1HVR. Note that this script needs you to specify some things, like the path to amber, the name of the prmtop file without the extension and the succession of atoms by atom number that we need to reconstruct in the list of atoms in the script, we don’t include neither hydrogens nor one atom in the rings; their contribution is expected to be very small, and it will save us some computing time.

Geometry is far from ideal however we shall optimize it using Gaussian. When using such a water model it is essential that the hydrogen atom motion of the water also be fixed since failure to do this can lead to very large inaccuracies in the calculation of the densities etc. Here the -i sustiva. For this command, g is short for global and c is short for check with the user before making the change.


When the job is complete, you will obtain the following output files: Since we want to “see” graphical representations of our models, this tutorial will use xleap.

In the second step, all the previous atoms can move, but one: Molecule may move to a neighboring box during tjtorial especially those molecules are close to the boundary, which is very annoying when we visualize the system. If we start we several frames, then the output will be the average entropy of all the frames. Analysing the output files 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.

These files antechqmber not deleted by default since they may be of interest if things didn’t work correctly. During a long simulation, the whole system may start moving and rotating which give an unwanted kinetic energy.

This has the effect of allowing us to cover a given amount of phase space in half as much time since we need only 50, steps to cover ps in time as opposed to thewe required with a 1 fs time step. The density of pure liquid water at K is approximately 1.

Now that we have equilibrated our system it is essential that we check that equilibrium has successfully been achieved before moving on to running any production MD simulations in which we would hope to learn something new about our molecule. We shall use Antechamber to assign atom types to this molecule and also antechamner a set of point charges. While the most likely combinations of bond, angle and dihedral parameters are defined in the parameter file it is possible that our molecule might contain combinations of atom types for bonds, angles or dihedrals that have not been parameterised.

It is notable that we do not read in parm94 or parm99 force field parameters, therefore, all the parameters of antechabmer molecule are missing atom types in AMBER force fields are capital letters, whereas gaff applies smallcase letters.


The starting point can be any file format supported by antechamber pdb, mol2, sd etc.

You can safely delete them. In the new window, save the file. The program halts if the bond type assignment is ttuorial. Pdb file is here: Then a iterative function is applied to assign bond types for each valence state in a increasing order of penalty scores.

Here is the input file: An antichamber input file need all the atom names to be unique and only the first three characters will be used.

Initial simulation:

Note, we also no longer need the -ref switch: As you can see this file contains the 3 dimensional structure of our sustiva molecule as well as the charge on each atom, final column, the atom number column 1its name column 2 and it’s atom type column 6. This can be done for the complex or ligand for either the gas or the water phase by selecting and loading the corresponding.

The the basic command to create a “prepin” file for LEaP is just: Building proper torsion parameters. The above commands first generate the input files sustiva. To generate the files we need for the MD in Amber, we use the programs Antechamber and Leap, that are included in the package AmberTools, freely available at http: 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.
