f = fopen('1IV7_1M.txt','r');
x = fscanf(f , '%d %d %f' , [3 inf]);
x = x';
g = fopen('1FA3_6_1M.txt','r');
y = fscanf(g, '%d %d %f %f',[4 inf]);
y = y';
h = fopen('1FA3_12_1M.txt','r');
z = fscanf(h, '%d %d %f %f', [4 inf]);
z = z';
F = [x(:,3), y(:,3), z(:,3)];
Fmean = mean(F,2);
Fsd = std(F,0,2);
Ferr = Fsd/sqrt(3);
errorbar(Fmean, Ferr, 'bx');
xlabel ('H-bonded amide residue pairs ');
ylabel ('F (pN)');
label = cellstr(num2str(x(:,1:2)));
title('Average force on backbone atoms due to all atoms of its parntering H-bond residue ');
set(gca,'XTickLabel',label);
set(gca,'XTick',1:length(label))

The method of rotating tick labels depends upon which MATLAB you are using. If you are using R2014b or later then see http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/axes-properties.html#property_xticklabelrotation

Try this: xtickangle(45)

This will work from R2016b onwards, but would not have worked for Ahmed Lachhab's R2013a version.
