[Chimera-users] heme (fe) containing enzyme

The Minimize Structure tool is currently rather limited. Unfortunately
only the following monatomic ions can be handled: Na+, K+, Rb+, Cs+,
Mg2+, Ca2+, Zn2+, and Cl–.
The workaround for the ion problem is to change FE to ZN (for
example), but freeze the ion and nearby residues so that this change
does not affect the structure. You would do that by selecting a zone
around the ion (Ctrl-click it and then use "Select... Zone..." in the
menu) and specifying "Fixed atoms: selected" in the Minimize Structure
tool. Of course, then that part of the structure won't be adjusted.
Ways to change FE to another element are: text-editing the PDB file,
or using the Modify Atom section of Build Structure (under Tools...
Structure Editing), or using a command something like:
setattr a element Zn Fe
I don't know what is happening with your histidine. If you still get
that problem use "Help... Report a Bug" in the Chimera menu, and
include information such as what structure you are working with and
what led up to the error (and your e-mail address if you want a
further response after the bug report).
I hope this helps,
