Image
This tutorial presents various models of molecular graphics representations such as Wireframe model, Ball & Stick model, Spacefill model, Surface model, Stick model, Backbone model, Van der Waals model, Ribbon model, Strand model, and Electrostatic potential model of protein structure using Swiss PDB Viewer.ProtocolOpen Swiss PDB Viewer software.Click FileOpen PDB File… menu to browse protein structure (.pdb file) location. By default, it displays protein structure in “Wireframe” model.In Control Panel window, right-click symbol “::v” to display whole protein structure in “Van der Waals” model.Click DisplayRender in Solid 3D menu, and click DisplayShow Backbone Oxygens menu (deselect) to display protein structure in “Sticks” model.In Control Panel window, right-click symbol “side” to display whole protein structure in “Backbone” model.In Control Panel window, right-click symbol “ribn” and “show” to display whole protein structure in “Ribbons in Cartoons” model.Click Color act …
