[phenixbb] [ccp4bb] Autobuild in specific area

I had similar situation recently. I would suggest to build manually or in coot (place a helix) at least one helix that you see clearly. Then check that protein a and protein b (helix) are different chains in model pdb. Then provide the sequences of both chains. In this situation autobuild will certainly rebuild this helix with real sequence and will try to build more (don't forget to select 'build outside model' option). I would also increase the number of rebuilding cycles to something 20-30. In my case it took around 7 cycles until it started to put any new amino acid.

I can only see clear density on one alpha-helix at the moment, and the R/Rfree values are 0.37/0.43 (2.5 A, P1). Regarding to your second suggestion, I do not find this option though GUI yet, will try tomorrow. Do you have any other suggestions on my situation? Thank you in advance.

> Hi, All,
> I am trying to use Autobuild to build a protein-protein complex model. I obtained partial phase solution (protein-A) through MR, and can see some density of protein-B near protein-A. I would like to use Autobuild to build protein-B model into this area. I load data file, initial density map file, sequence file (both of protein A and B), and protein A model, and run Autobuild. However, The "rebuild-in-place" function confused me a lot, no matter I set it to True or False. When I set to True, it only rebuilt protein A model without adding any additional residues; while I set it to False, it deleted the input protein-A model, and rebuilt a new one... Could somebody tell me how to build the protein B model with keeping the input protein A model in Autobuild? Thanks.
