[Chimera-users] does chimara allow changing of the primary sequence of the protein?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a PhD student working for the University of East Anglia. I have just downloaded the Chimera software and I really like the look of it. So far I have found it very user friendly. I was wondering if the software allows incorporating changes into the protein structure? I am working on the mutant of my protein of interest. I have found, through experimental procedures, that when I mutate one residue it changes the properties of the protein. I was wondering if the effects I am seeing are due to changes in the protein structure. I would like to visualise it. I am not interested in generating crystal structure of the mutated protein or anything like that. I really would like to insert a different amino acid into the structure that already exist. I understand it might be incorrect but all I want to achieve is a "prediction". Would chimera software do that for me?

Kind regards,

Marta Mikolajczak
