Overview

set cartoon_side_chain_helper is an easy way, in cartoon mode, to only show the side chain of a residue.

For residues represented in cartoon (but not ribbon) form, if you show the residue also in stick or wireframe cartoon_side_chain_helper hides backbone atoms. Showing the sidechain in this method distorts the cartoon shape so it joins with the sidechain, effectively over-riding any cartoon_flat_cycles setting for that residue.

Syntax

set cartoon_side_chain_helper, off            
set cartoon_side_chain_helper, 0              #off

set cartoon_side_chain_helper, on             
set cartoon_side_chain_helper, 1              #on
