Matrix_copy copies the object matrix from one object to another.

This command is often used after a protein structure alignment to bring other related objects into the same frame of reference.

Usage

matrix_copy source_name, target_name

Arguments

Example

Here's a practical example. We grab two proteins and their density maps. We then align one to the other and then use matrix_copy to move over the density map:

# fetch two proteins and their maps
 
fetch 1rx1 3dau, async=0
fetch 1rx1 3dau, type=2fofc, async=0
 
# align them proteins
 
align 1rx1, 3dau
 
# copy 1rx1's matrix to 1rx1_2fofc
# it's density map
 
matrix_copy 1rx1, 1rx1_2fofc
 
# show the result
 
enable *
show extent, *2fofc


Example

# load two molecules
load mol1.pdb
load mol2.pdb
 
# load their maps
load map1.ccp4
load map2.ccp4
 
# align the two molecules
align mol2////CA, mol1////CA
 
# copy mol2's map to mol2
matrix_copy mol2, map2
 
# show the isomesh
isomesh mesh1, map1
isomesh mesh2, map2
