ANTHEPROT 3D 1.0.162- Molecule Viewer to look at PDB files

ANTHEPROT 3D 1.0.162


Antheprot 3D is a molecular graphics program intended for the visualisation of proteins, nucleic acids from RCSB archive. The program is aimed at display, teaching and generation of publication quality images.


The program reads in a molecule coordinate file (PDB format) and interactively displays the molecule on the screen in a variety of color schemes and molecule representations. Currently available representations include wireframes, sticks, spheres, ball and stick, atom labels and distances. PDB files that are available either locally (Ctrl+O or File=>Open) or distantly at “POLE Bioinformatique Lyonnais” (Ctrl+I) or File=> PBIL URL can be loaded directly into AntheProt3D.

The program is made of 3 different windows:

  • A 3D view window which allows the user to interactively move the molecule
  • A group selection panel for group selection
  • A text window for provinding the user the list of clicked atoms, information (F2) and PHI, PSI values

A Ramachandran interactive plot is also available


  • Alpha trace, wireframe, space filled,Balla nd Sticks, Sticks and surface mode.
  • Full support of clipping (“molecule slicing”)
  • Full support of stereo (side by side, anaglyph or quad buffer stereo)
  • Interactive Ramachandran plot
  • Hydrogen addition or removal by reduce
  • Selection of amino acids by group, chain or within a sphere
  • Surface viewer for MSMS files (Sanner, M.F., Spehner, J.-C., and Olson, A.J. (1996).Biopolymers, 38 (3), 305-320.
  • Ribbon or cylinder mode from Molscript program (P. J. Kraulis, (1991) Journal of Applied Crystallography 24, pp 946-950.)
  • Support for Delphi electrostatic potential Rocchia, W.; Alexov, E.; Honig, B. (2001) J Phys. Chem. 105, 6507-6514
