Hi,
 
Here I have two questions:
 
1) I superimposed two protein structures. They are similar but have different numbering of residues, e.g residue 34 in structure A is equivalent to residue 38 in structure B. I want to show only the side chain of residue 34 for structure A and residue 38 for structure B. I selected only structure A, and type the command: show sticks, resi 34; and select only structure B and: show sticks, resi 38. But the residue 34 in structure B and residue 38 in structure A were also shown. Could anyone teach me how to show residue 34 in structure A and 38 in structure B only?
 
2) Related to the same molecules. I want to show sticks for the R-group of residue 34 only. I typed the command: show sticks, resi 34. But the backbone atoms were shown also. Could anyone teach me how to show sticks for the R-group only??
 
Thanks in advance!!!!
