[Molvis-list] help: SS-bond in Rasmol-2.7.3

   I have a question about the ssbond function in Rasmol.

   For protein with PDB code "1AOL", when typing SS-bond, it shows there 
are 6
   SS bridges, and the distance between bonded sulfur atoms is around 2 Å.
   However, both PDB file and DSSP file do not indicate there are any 
   for that protein. What scheme does Rasmol use to determine whether 
there is
   an SS-bond or not? Something other than DSSP and PDB file?

Thanks very much.

Yours sincerely,
