I am trying to do a constant force pull on my ligand, pulling it out of a protein. I have the backbone atoms and certain atoms in the DMPC membrane constrained. The force on the ligand is 1 kcal/mol/A^2 or 69.479 pN A. As the ligand is moving, the waters on both sides of the membrane expand away from the membrane the simulation stops with the error:
ERROR: Constraint failure in RATTLE algorithm for atom 60956!
ERROR: Constraint failure; simulation has become unstable.
Before I put a constraint on the membrane, it was separating in opposite directions along the z-coordinate. As for the water, I can't constrain those or the simulation stops with periodic boundary errors. How do I do a constant force pull on a ligand in a protein/membrane/water system?
