I could not generate a psf file to NA-Cl. I have the pdb file for Na-Cl. It
COMPND Sodium Chloride
AUTHOR Peter Carr
ATOM 1 Na SOD 1 0.000 0.000 -1.200 1.00 0.00
ATOM 2 Cl CLA 1 0.000 0.000 1.200 1.00 0.00
CONECT 1 2
CONECT 2 1
But when I tried to generate the psf file for this one, it always
complained about not recognizing the coordinates and eventually produced a
file without Cl- atom in it.
Something like the following.
REMARK original generated coordinate pdb file
ATOM 1 SOD SOD X 1 0.000 0.000 0.000 -1.00 0.00 U
Then I tried to do the same thing with shifted NA-Cl molecule like
following, but still the result is same
CRYST1 0.000 0.000 0.000 90.00 90.00 90.00 P 1 1
ATOM 1 Na SOD A x 1.000 1.000 -0.200 1.00
ATOM 2 Cl CLA A x 1.000 1.000 2.200 1.00
Have you done this before?
