The two missing loops of the 1DAN structure when in cartoon mode are located to res. 183-189 and 220-220. Im using a standard PC with Windows 2000.

Any suggestions? A fellow collegue in my lab is having identical troubles but hes also using a PC with win2000. Its quite frustrating because the rest of the structure looks great in PyMol!


Cheers Kasper

(OSX, PC, Linux?) I have had a look and it looks ok on windows
