I am trying to dock some ligands in an catalytic site containing a Mg ion using Autodock4. All the ligands are though to interact with the metal ion as they contain a metal-binding motif. I am aware that I can specify the Mg charge manually in the pdbqt file, and I know that a charge of +2 is probably not accurate as the partial charge would change due to the surrounding residues. I found this paper which is very useful

As it deals with a similar problem by trying with different charges on the ion. What I would like to discuss with someone that has more experience in this is how to decide the correct charge on the Mg ion, I see that in the paper they discarded the +2 charge due to the short distances between the ion and the oxygens, but I am not sure how to decide a cutoff for this and/or if there are other strategies that people are aware of. Thanks in advance,
