Hi Elaine and Eric,
Thank you for your reply.
I tried to follow the example of 1F88, and I have:
LINK C1 DCR A 1101 SG CYS A 267 DCR-CYS
LINK C1 DCR B 1201 SG CYS B 267 DCR-CYS
ATOM 7896 SG CYS B 267 149.139 168.091 151.319 1.00 24.38
ATOM 1371 SG CYS A 267 174.729 167.809 164.051 1.00 27.17
HETATM 6472 C1 DCR A1101 174.148 169.497 163.870 1.00 30.17
HETATM12696 C1 DCR B1201 148.862 169.613 152.232 1.00 29.68
CONECT 1371 6472
CONECT 7896 12696
The log says,
warning: Ignored bad PDB record found on line 148
warning: Ignored bad PDB record found on line 149
Lines 148 & 149 refer to the two LINK records. Why is it saying that it is
bad? Does my LINK record (obtained from Jligand) need to be altered for
