[phenixbb] differentiate Glu/Gln and Asp/Asn from Electron Density?

In continuation to my earlier thread (subject: sequence independent model
building possible?), I have built model into density without knowledge of
sequence for a data diffracted to 1.9A resolution. Current R/Rfree is
15/19, phaser error=16.88 degrees with no Ramachandran outliers.
Is there a way we can differentiate between Glu/Gln, Asp/Asn and sometimes
Thr/Val directly from density? I have considered the local environment
(hydrophobic/hydrophilic/polarity pockets, possible hydrogen bonds/other
interactions, buried/exposed, etc...) in choosing one over the other
confusing pairs of amino acids. However, I am not absolutely certain in
A BLAST of this sequence against all non-redundant protein sequence
database yield highest hit of 80% sequence identity. Hence, we are still
not sure of sequence of the contaminant protein which got crystallised and
want to decipher sequence directly from the structure.
Thanks for any pointers/suggestions,
