H++ is an automated system that computes pK values
of ionizable groups in macromolecules and adds missing hydrogen atoms
according to the specified pH of the environment.
Given a (PDB) structure file on input, H++ outputs the completed
structure in several common
formats (PDB, PQR, AMBER inpcrd/prmtop) and provides
a set of tools for analysis of electrostatic-related molecular
properties. Why H++

AMBER compatible output PDB structure includes CONECT records
1/2022 - New release of H++ (Version 4.0), which includes the following upgrades:
H++ can now process structures with phosphorylated side chains.
- AmberTools 20
- Newer force fields parameters (see below)
- AMBER compatible output PDB (PQR) structure
- OpenBabel v3.1.1 for ligands
- CentOS 8 for improved server security
- Intel Xeon E-2278G 8-core CPU for faster processing
FAQ has been updated to indicate that
the c-terminus can be capped with an amide cap (-NH2),
in addition to N-methylamide (NME) capping.
Fixed error encountered when processing a structure containing
more than two CYS residues within 3A of each other.
Security and operating system upgrade to prevent unauthorized access to the H++ server
H++ can now calculate the pKs for proteins embedded in a membrane.
See FAQ for details.
