I am looking for the best way to display the interaction between a ligand (neuropeptide) and its receptor.
I have a transmembrane receptor, to which I have docked a neuropeptide. The receptor is imbedded in a POPC membrane. At the moment I am not displaying the POPC or the water molecules. I display the receptor in ribbon form and the ligand as VDW. I now want to display those receptor residues near the ligand as CPK. I only seem to be able to select atoms near the ligand but not the whole residue. How do I select/display the whole residue?

Also what is the best way of displaying the surface of the receptor so that you can see the ligand docked?
