Hnn... Ah well. There goes that hope for an additionThere is no DNA in the Jmol.
I use 22-gauge jewelry wire to make supports (in place of those connectors that come with the kit, because those cannot be adjusted in length). I just have it around, because I make jewelry, but it should be possible to find at Michael's or a similar craft store.After bending the toober excessively, I have found that our model has become wobbly. What do you guys do to keep the model stable?

For those of you experienced with Jmol:
I've read that Cys-285 is part of the active site for Caspase-3, the prebuild model, so I want to include its sidechain in the prebuild. However, when I try to select "285" in Jmol, it comes up with Ala, not Cys. Why don't the numbers match up? Has anyone else noticed this?
Yes, it's absolutely supposed to be a cysteine, and yes, that cysteine is very important to the protein's function. The numbers do match up; the alanine is just in the spot where the cysteine is supposed to be.It is possible that it is a typo, because I'm pretty confident it's a cysteine. Also, they could have mixed up the sulfur for a carbon. However, it is a good point to bring up, since it's definitely important to the protein's function. Perhaps we should submit a clarification on this.
