for protein 3m8v, the alter_state command I am using for REM350 is:

create 3m8v_a, 3m8v

alter_state 1, 3m8v_a, (x,y,z)=((-0.5+0.866025)x+(0.866025+0.5)y,-z)

But it gives error at x saying invalid syntax..According to 
BIOMT transformations i think this should be the correct equation..

I shall be thankful if anyone can let me know the bug..
