I would like to manually movement some b-sheets from a 3D structure of my PDF protein to represent a change in its structure.There some tool i can do that?

  • $\begingroup$ Using PyMOL, (see Nicolai's answer and my comment), you can also generate movie of a transition between two structures (conformations). Question: why do you want to edit the structure manually? $\endgroup$ – user37894 Oct 1 '18 at 19:55

If I remember correctly pymol can edit pdb structures (as well as visualize them).

I've used a student version though (which is a free full version) and I'm not quite sure if its possible to use pymol without buying a license nowadays (though the source code is still open source, so can in principle always install it from that)
