Basic modeling question: I have a theoretical model of two docked
molecules, and its godawful. However, I think that the basic binding
mode is okay, so I'd like to just do some simple refinement and see if
1) I can relieve the bad contacts
2) I can get some degree of surface complementarity in the process
What would be the easiest way of going about this? How hard would
it be to do a rigid-body refinement in X-PLOR with the xray term
off, but with vdW and electrostatics on, and how well does that
work in people's experience? Do you get the molecules flying apart
due to a couple of bad contacts?
Alternatively, is there a better program to use?
