[Chimera-users] Error in generating sqm for FAD

I have no problem charging the FAD, though it takes quite a long time to finish and I'm sure the protonation in my trial differs from yours, since the net charge for me is -2 whereas for you it is +1 (not +5; I don't know why you think it was +5 but the "-nc 1" part of the antechamber command you sent indicates a net charge of +1).
The first problem is that the structure you sent is protonated wrong in two ways. First, in your structure only non-carbon atoms are protonated. Charge determination requires all protons be present. Second, in your structure the oxygens of the flavin quinone ring are protonated and they should not be.
Correcting these problems can be done in a few steps. First, open the Chimera command line (Favorites->Command Line) and type "del H". This will delete all the hydrogens. Now we need to tell Chimera that the quinone oxygens are ketones, not alcohols. To do this select the two oxygens and then type "setattr a idatmType O2 sel" (i.e. the atom type of the selected atoms is sp2 oxygen). Then we need to tell chimera that the nitrogen between the those two should be protonated. Do this by selecting that nitrogen and typing "setattr a idatmType Npl sel".
Now add hydrogens by typing "addh". You'll notice that the other nitrogen in the ring also gets protonated. This is because Chimera favors a protonation state where the central flavin ring is positively charged and aromatic (i.e. a positively charged semiquinone). To force the "classic" flavin protonation, select the extra proton and type "del sel".
Now you will be able to run add charge. Let me know if you have any further problems.
