Fuse

From PyMOLWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

fuse joins two objects into one by forming a bond. A copy of the object containing the first atom is moved so as to form an approximately reasonable bond with the second, and is then merged with the first object.

Usage

fuse [ selection1 [, selection2 [, mode [, recolor [, move ]]]]]

Arguments

  • selection1 = str: single atom selection (will be copied to object 2) {default: (pk1)}
  • selection2 = str: single atom selection {default: (pk2)}
  • mode = int: {default: 0}
    • mode=0:
    • mode=1: adopt segi/chain/resn`resi
    • mode=2: adopt segi/chain
    • mode=3: don't move and don't create a bond, just combine into single object
  • recolor = bool: recolor C atoms to match target {default: 1}
  • move = bool: {default: 1}

Example

Phosphorylate a serine residue:

fetch 1ubq, async=0

fragment phosphite
remove phosphite & elem H

fuse phosphite & elem P, /1ubq///65/OG, mode=1
delete phosphite

show sticks, resi 65
orient resi 65
unpick

Notes

Each selection must include a single atom in each object. The atoms can both be hydrogens, in which case they are eliminated, or they can both be non-hydrogens, in which case a bond is formed between the two atoms.
