Did you know...


This script does more or less the same as BiologicalUnit. It creates the quaternary structure (BIOMOLECULE 1 assembly) from the REMARK 350 header.

This script is convenient to use because it searches automatically for the PDB file in the current directory, in fetch_path and (if available) in your local PDB mirror.

Example Usage

fetch 3bw1
quat 3bw1
as cartoon

The Code

(c) 2010-2011 Thomas Holder, MPI for Developmental Biology
Module for reading REMARK records from PDB files and in particular
generate quaterny structure from REMARK 350.
import sys, os
from pymol import cmd, stored
local_mirror_divided = '/mnt/bio/db/pdb.divided'
def pdbremarks(filename):
    Read REMARK lines from PDB file. Return dictionary with remarkNum as key
    and list of lines as value.
    remarks = dict()
    if not isinstance(filename, basestring):
        f = filename
    elif filename[-3:] == '.gz':
        import gzip
        f =  [[BiologicalUnit/Quat|..→]]
