[Chimera-users] how to move subunits of a pentamer receptor in a controlled way

Dear Sir,

This is Yinghui Zhang from Massachusetts General Hospital. I am a frequent user of Chimera to understand the structure of a neuronal pentamer receptor which is ion channel. Now we want to do some modification of the receptor by manipulating the coordinates of the atoms of the receptor pdb files. The aim is to move each subunit radially away from the receptor’s central symmetry axis(which should be the central channel axis ) or tilt each subunit outward. The symmetry of the receptor cannot be disrupted and we want to do it in a quantitative manner(move by a specific ‎Å or tilt by a specific degree value). Could you please give us some clues if we can realize these aims in Chimera?

Many thanks and regards!

Yinghui Zhang
