Images of the Nucleosome

From the X-ray crystal structure of Richmond and colleagues: Luger, K., Mäder, A. W., Richmond, R. K., Sargent, D. F. & Richmond, T. J. (1997). Crystal structure of the nucleosome core particle at 2.8 Å resolution. Nature 389, 251-260.

Here is the PDB file, 1AOI.PDB. And here is a Rasmol command file, as usual, suitable for cutting and pasting into the Mac version. This version of the command file has pause statements for running as a script in Windows.

Here is a Jmol tutorial that uses the more recent 1KX5 structure.

You should get results approximately like these images:
