I'd just like to add a comment which might be relevant in this case: PDB
residue numbering is, at times, non-consecutive, or may contain
non-numeric characters (e.g. 31A). This may cause problems if somehow
you wish to later correlate your sequence file with the PDB file.
I recommend using DSSP, and then running a script on the resulting DSSP
file. That way you preserve PDB residue numbering, consecutive
numbering, and 2ndary structure.
