To view the real time rotatable images you need a pdb (Protein Data Bank) viewer. An excellent and free pdb viewer available for the PC, MAC and UNIX platforms is Rasmol (currently at version 2.5). Basic instructions for using Rasmol.

Now for Macintosh users! Here at MultiCHEM, we have developed RasMac v2.5-ucb, a new version of RasMol with many enhancements such as viewing of multiple molecules, distance/angle measurement and more.
