a question about the sreflex

#1 Post by frankhaha » 2017.10.30 07:45

Dear administrator,

Hello,this is a user of the sreflex and I research the complex about protein and DNA by sreflex.I have two questions about this soft.
1.Now I write the structure information above (DNA protein)in one and the same pdb,then usethe sreflex.(the command -sreflex -experiment.dat -complex.pdb). I'm wondering whether I can just respectively input two pdb,then use the sreflex.(the command -sreflex -experiment.dat -DNA.pdb -Protein.pdb).I find it can't work now.

2.When I use the sreflex.For the output pdb about the complex, I find the DNA will be two parts. I wonder whether can remain the DNA structure as the initial condition.

Best wishes,

Dear Frank,

Thanks for your question.
To input different parts of the structure in different PDBs, just type as stated in the manual:
sreflex experimental.dat Dna.pdb,Protein.pdb
This syntax overrides the partitioning of the structure, so DNA and Protein will be kept intact and only moved relatively to each other.
Note: both PDB filenames are separated by a comma (no whitespace).

Alternatively, you can use the following to deactivate the RESTRAINED refinement stage (which is where the structure partition occurs).
sreflex experimental.dat complex.pdb -s RESTRAINED

This is explained in the manual as well, available at:
