    The interactions between amino acid side chains in proteins are generally considered to be the most important stabilizing factor controlling the precise arrangement of the polypeptide chain into a well-defined spatial structure. We used the RI-DFT-D method to calculate the full 20 × 20 matrix of interaction energies between all pairs of amino acid side chains. We find that all of the calculated interaction energies between selected pairs of amino acids are attractive in the gas phase with the exception of side chain pairs having the same total charge. We compared these data with those calculated by the parm03 and OPLS-AA/L force fields to investigate the reliability of simple methods in modeling biomolecules and their behavior. The force fields yield good overall interaction energies for our set but have problems in evaluation of some particular interactions which could be of principal importance for protein stability.
