To whom it may concern,

I am using Chimera to color surfaces of proteins according to electrostatic
potential files calculated by APBS.
Now, in Chimera, there is the option to select a threshold, e.g. at which
value the surface should be colored in red and at which value it is colored
in blue.

Now i would like to know in which unit this threshold works? Is it kcal
(mol·e)-1?

While this has been described for the Coloumbic surface coloring within
Chimera Help, I could not find any explanation for this in the help menu,
when loading external APBS potential files into Chimera.

Thank You very much for Your time and help!!!
