Dear Dr. Elaine,
The last few lines of the file are as follows:
ATOM 1212 OXT GLN 76 17.333 31.515 17.211 1.00
ATOM 1213 CO CAL 77 35.029 27.971 38.126 1.00
ATOM 1214 CO CAL 78 37.868 20.307 30.270 1.00
I also tried with Ca instead of C in the last column , but no improvement.
Thank you for help,
University of Cincinnati
