I am going through the membrane/protein tutorial, and after I get through the Building The Tetramer step (for my protein 5TTC, not KcsA), I open the structure in VMD and VMD thinks the 4 monomers are 4 different frames instead of 1 tetrameric structure. What would cause VMD to open my concatenated pdb file with the monomers as frames instead of a single structure?
