Hi Cesar,
     Thank you for suggestion.This system is a super-helix consisted of three chains,about 110 X 3 residues.I have performed a 10,000 steps minimization and 500ps MD(with CA fixed),then another 500ps free MD was performed.While minimization,the energy fluctuation(sorry,I shuld correct myself,that the changing energy is not VDW but Elect energy) didn't occur,but both the constrain MD and free MD presented the energy shift as said before.
     By the way,during solvating the protein,we set the waters departing 3.3 Å from protein (defaut is 2.4 Å),and then did NTV MD. So that, at some specific positions near the protein, huge water holes occured.Did the Elect Energy shift has any relationship with this?
    Thank you for your time.
