Access Membrane Protein Annotations

04/19

A new publication describes improved annotation, search and visualization of membrane proteins:

RCSB Protein Data Bank: improved annotation, search and visualization of membrane protein structures archived in the PDB
(2022) Bioinformatics 38: 1452–1454 10.1093/bioinformatics/btab813

Membrane annotations from OPM, PDBTM, and MemProtMD have been integrated with PDB data.

A custom Mol* visualization enables prediction and visualization of the membrane layer placement.

Users access detailed information on the ‘Annotations’ tab of individual Structure Summary pages and browse OPM annotations using the ‘Browse Annotations’ feature.

Transmembrane sequence segments are highlighted in the 1D Protein Feature View.

Documentation is available for these features.
