Hi Francesco,

I doubt that modeller knows how to take into account inter-subunit information. I would be surprised if it does. As far as I know, it's a sequence-homology based model building module which also uses fold recognition and probably other pieces of information but not about oligomeric arrangement. When I dealt with a similar problem (modelling a dimer) I modelled the subunit and then superimposed  each of the two subunits on top of the corresponding subunit of the known dimer, followed by Chimera's matchmaker. The resulting dimer is still considered   a hypothetical structure by me.  

  Cheers,

           Boaz

Hello:
Modeling a trimer (all three chains present, though missing residues and
atoms) with chimera and modeller installed locally.

The default is modeling each chain, one at a time. The chains are identical
in sequence but the X-ray structure shows different localized
conformations. Question: is modeller modeling by taking the other two
chains into account?

If already answered, beg pardon.

thanks

If not clear, the template here is the fasta file. I wonder where Sali's
modeller allows filling residues in a multimer by also taking into account
the inetraction between the different subunits. Not seen any example.
