Dear all,

I opened the pdb 1OFU (SulA-FtsZ complex) and visually I am not sure 
where is exactly the protein FtsZ in this complex and also whether FtsZ 
is complete or not.

So I opened the pdb 1FSZ which is one structure for FtsZ and I applied 
Matchmaker. The result is the superimposition of this protein with the 

However, the complex is made of two FtsZ proteins, each at one end of 
the complex. So I opened again the pdb 1FSZ and applied Matchmaker in 
order to get each end superimposed with one FtsZ protein. But what I 
obtained is the same result obtained during the first use of Matchmaker: 
both FtsZ are superimposed at the same place. May you tell me how to 
specify the software not to use the same location?

I join the Chimera session. Many thanks for your help.
