Biological Unit: Showing
This article explains how to show the biological unit (biological assembly) in a scene in Proteopedia. If you simply want to see the biological unit, go to Visualizing the Biological Unit. For background, see Biological Unit and Asymmetric Unit.
- 1. Go to the MakeMultimer Server.
- 2. Submit the PDB code.
- 3. Click on the mm1.pdb link to download the biological assembly PDB file. For example, if you submitted 1hho, there will be a link to 1hho_mm1.pdb.
- Optionally you may examine all the biological units with the links to FirstGlance in Jmol.
- 4. Upload the mm1.pdb file into Proteopedia, and use it in a molecular scene, following the instructions at Help:Uploading molecules.
You can also find the MakeMultimer Server with FirstGlance in Jmol. Every page in Proteopedia titled with a PDB code has a link to FirstGlance. While viewing the asymmetric unit in FirstGlance, click on Key Resources, then on Probable Quaternary Structure, and there you will find the link to MakeMultimer.
