[Chimera-users] Molecule fusing

Hi Sir/Madam


I want to create models which consist of multiple protein molecules, in which the individual protein molecules are fused together to form a single structure. Something like the scanning 3D maps produced by electron microscopes. Is it possible to do this with the Muliscale Models tool or some other tool or method in Chimera?


An example of what I want to do appears in the cutaway rotavirus illustration (Fig. 1A) in Chen and colleagues paper, titled, "Molecular interactions in rotavirus assembly and uncoating seen by high-resolution cryo-EM" (PNAS, vol. 106. no. 26, p. 10644). In this illustration the yellow triangular shaped structure are multiple VP7 molecules fused together.
