I have a particular ligand I am submitting, but when I submit it as a pdb file the Cl atoms are automatically replaced with CH3 atoms. As well as one of the Nitrogen atoms being protonated. i thought to correct this problem by submitting it as a mol2 file. But when I did this there was an error in the calculations, even though it did not remove or change any atom. So how can I fix the error and yet maintain the correct ligand structure. The two ligands are C5(mol2) and C5-1A(pdb).

We have checked the problem and right now I think the best solution -before we find a general solution to fix this problem-is to draw in the ligand (and do not upload it)- in that case the ligand processing works fine. Your ligand looks fine, so we have to further check what has caused the problem.

Do you have any idea about what is wrong and how long. Now when I upload the same ligand PDB file, it replaces the chlorines with methyl groups. I don't know why it does that. The current file is C5, under the directory Reed. It should have Cl instead of CH3. Also, when I did draw it in, it ran fine, but the result files did not have the final bond in the OH so when I put it into other programs to analyze the results the molecule was incomplete and couldn't have further calculations done on it.

Thanks

The drawn ligand has been corrected in your account - it seems that it was not geometry optimized using the geometry optimization checkbox, which caused the error. Uploading ligand files is always a more difficult case because of the incompatibility of the different molecular modelling softwares. We will try to figure out some solution for your special problem.
