Building Modified DNA topology

GROMACS version: 2021.4
GROMACS modification: Yes/No
Here post your question

I am having trouble generating topology for a type of modified DNA, but I’m not sure how to do it.
In fact, there is a 35-nucleotide sequence of ssDNA. Using the Discovery Studio program, I converted the Thymidine Oxygen 4 atom to Sulfur in my sequence. Unfortunately, I have not been able to discover any server or method for constructing its topology.
Could you please help me to overcome this issue?

Here, this is my sequence and the bold T one is the nucleotide which I need to alter the Oxygen 4 atom to Sulfur.


CHARMM36 supports this species - it is residue 4SU, though it is built as an RNA nucleotide, it is trivial to modify the 2’ group to be the deoxy form.

Thanks, dear Jalemkul,
But this is a thymidine which I want to modify and build the whole structure topology.
Is there any other forcefield that would be more suitable for this issue?

I don’t understand this statement.

I don’t know of any other that supports such a residue without you having to derive the parameters entirely from scratch. Why isn’t CHARMM suitable for what you need?

Thanks, dear. Because most of the articles have used Amber forcefield for RNA and DNA projects.
you have been very helpful.
