If you start from the crystal structure downlloaded directly from
pdb there could be two side-chains of one amino-acid (both
sidechains are visible in electron density map but I do not
remember how crystalographers call this) or side-chain could
be missing. If this is first case than chose one and delete the second,
if this is the second case try SCWRL or swiss-pdb-viewer.
