Hi experts,

I am currently refining a structure containing zinc ions by using CNS.
The Zn atom interacts with His N atoms and Glu O atoms. However, during
refinement, the distance between Zn and N is a little bit larger (2.4A)
than what I saw in literature (about 2.09A, right?). Can any one give me
suggestions? If I need to fix the distance or to change the ion
parameter file? Thanks in advance!
