Dear Debasish Banerjee,
Not sure I understand your question. UCSF Chimera is a molecular modeling/graphics program that you use on your own computer.
The only relationship to UniProtKB is that you can fetch sequences and annotations from that site while using Chimera. Maybe you mean you had trouble fetching data from the web (Chimera menu: File… Fetch by ID)?
We haven’t heard reports of a problem. For example, I can start UCSF Chimera 1.10, use menu: File… Fetch by ID, choose database “UniProt” and then get the sequence for NGF_HUMAN shown in Chimera. Of course, you have to be connected to the internet. Otherwise, if you have some specific problem you can use Chimera menu: Help… Report a Bug and give enough information about the steps you tried so that somebody else could reproduce it.
