Dear dockers/ Ruth/ Garrett,
to general questions:
(1) Is anybody aware of what the assumed pH for the standard settings is
(I would assume 7)? In case one wants to consider the protonation state
of amino acids at a different pH - for which amino acids (apart from
His) would that be sensible and does manual correction result in a wrong
calculation of respective charges (e.g. due to the lack of H-merging)?
(2) is random water placement considered in the docking simulation or am
I right thinking that a sensible water analysis is advisable and
cofactors should be included in the grid map calculation?
I would highly appreciate any hints,
