AMBERPLUS version 2010 is a patch that incorporates the following methods into one of the modules of AMBER, in particular sander, which carry outs energy minimization, molecular dynamics (MD), and NMR refinements. AMBERPLUS introduces:
  • the TINKER tapering function for long-range electrostatic interactions
  • the link atom method with a fixed value of the ratio of the Q1-QL bond length to the Q1-M1 bond length
  • multi-configuration molecular mechanics (MCMM) or electrostatically embedded multi-configuration molecular mechanics (EE-MCMM) method as one of the methods for the quantum mechanical (QM) region of a combined QM/MM calculation; this is accomplished by using MC-TINKER program

  • To install the AMBERPLUS version 2010, one requires AMBER version 11 with bugfixes 1-11, AMBERTOOLS version 1.4 with bugfixes 1-16, and MCSI version 2010.
