TMalign - protein structure alignment
TMalign performs a structural alignment of proteins. The alignment is scored by
the TM-score algorithm.
When started with no options, a summary of commands is given. With two protein
structures presented as arguments, the TM-score uses the length of the second
protein to be normalised. The final structural alignment is invariant to any
of the options below.
- number normalises TM-score by an assigned length (in
- normalises TM-score by the average length of the two
- normalises TM-score by the length of the shorter of the two
- normalises TM-score by the length of the longer of the two
- filename Run TM-align and output the superposition
to 'filename.sup' and 'filename.sup_all'. The output files serve as
scripts to the program rasmol. To view the superimposed structures
of the aligned regions call
'rasmol -script TM.sup' To view the superimposed structures of all regions
'rasmol -script TM.sup_all'.
