When docking a ligand with Glide, I get a warning message:
mmlewis warning: Wrong Lewis structure in structure input file
What does this warning indicate?
This warning appears if the ligand lacks hydrogens. Glide requires 3D, all-atom structures with good geometry. PDB structures usually lack hydrogens and higher-order bonds.
We recommend using LigPrep to prepare your ligands. In addition to adding hydrogens and minimizing the structure, it can generate various ionization/tautomer states and stereoisomers. However, to add double bonds, you should use Tools → Assign Bond Orders in Maestro prior to running LigPrep.
