You got only one match in your sequence search because you ran a search for only one chain.
But because your template and target are HOMOdimer use as alignment file in your .top script this kind of alignment:

Thank you very much for your reply.Eric i will tell my problem clearly.
I am having a protein of 274 amino acids.When i searched for the template
for this protein
it picked up the template which is of homodimer in nature.
i.e, it is having
aaaaaaaaaaaaaa/aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa(two chains).My protein is also belong to
the same family of template.In this family homodimer is of active form.
My protein matching with only to the first chain.
If i go ahead with this alignment i will get my peotein in monomeric form.
My question is
1.Whether i can go ahead and get my protein in monomeric form and after
that i can do any trick to convert it into homodimer form-->how to do
2.else in the alignment itself can i do any trick so that i can get
homodimer model of my protein--->how to do this.
If you tell me it will be of very helpful to me.Expecting reply from you.
