This small script illustrates how the TransformationMatrix class can be used to align two structures using three source and three target vectors. The TransformationMatrix is part of the p3d.geo_module.

alignByATP.py

usage

alignByATP.py <source-pdb> <ATP resid> <target-pdb> <ATP resid>

The output is the transformed source pdb

'''Aligns two pdbs by their ATPs by M. Specht & Ch. Fufezan 2009

usage: alignByATP.py <source-pdb> <ATP resid> <target-pdb> <ATP resid>
e.g.   alignByATP.py 2FXU.pdb 401 1RDQ.pdb 600
       aligns source-pdb onto the ATP of target-pdb by using the 'N1','C5' and 'N3' atoms
