Hi Wil,

Have you tried ConSurf server?  http://consurf.tau.ac.il

I haven't tried for a long time, but I think it can perform a sequence
analysis using the sequence associated to the PDB ID (3V0I for you) and
then it will map the residue conservation on to the structure. One the
files in the results page will be a kind of Chimera session file. You need
to download and open it in Chimera, then you’ll see the highlighted
residues according to the conservation score.
