Protein Structure Servers
The Primary Database
  1. The World Wide Protein Data Bank ( access to all published, empirical macromolecular 3D structure data.
Examples of Derived Databases
  1. Proteopedia.Org: All PDB entries in Jmol. Ligands and sites. A wiki with scene-authoring tools.
  2. Evolutionarily conserved patches on protein surfaces (ConSurfDB & ConSurf)
  3. Probable quaternary structure: Specific oligomer/biological assembly coordinates/prediction (MakeMultimer, PISA).
  4. Finding energetically significant cation-pi interactions (CaPTURE Server).
  5. Discovering similar structures without reference to sequences (Dali, FATCAT, VAST, Others).
  6. Model quality by atomic contact analysis: "clashscore" after adding all hydrogen atoms (MolProbity).
  7. Structure prediction by homology/comparative modeling using empirical templates (Swiss Model).
  8. Lipid bilayer boundaries for integral membrane proteins, modeled and visualized by (Orientations of Proteins in Membranes).
