|PDB identifier and chain (Protein chain)||
PDB (Protein Data Bank)
identifier is specified in a 4-character PDB assigned identifier.
The chain identifier is defined by one-character as found in the PDB file for the desired chain.
If the chain identifier is not provided, it will be assumed that this protein includes only one chain,
with a blank chain identifier.
Users must input a PDB code which is present in PDB before Dec 08, 2006,
otherwise, the user needs to upload a protein 3D structure file with PDB format.
|Upload files by user (New protein structure)||
If the query protein is a new structure or is not available in our PDB database,
the user can upload a protein structure file with PDB format(*.ent or *.pdb) and input the chain identifier.
If the chain identifier is not provided, it will be assumed that the uploaded file only
includes one chain with a blank chain identifier. The upload structure file must be
with minimum or at least HEADER and ATOM records in PDB format. The description of file format can be found in
PDB guide webpage.

"Length" is the alignment length of aligning a query structure to a subject structure by using BLAST with structural alphabets.
"Score" is the score of aligning a query structure to subject structure by using BLAST
structural alphabet substitution matrix (SASM). In general, more meaningful alignments correspond to lower E-values and higher
"%Iden" is the structural alphabet identity, which is similar to sequence identity in protein sequence alignment,
of aligning a query structure to subject structure by using BLAST.
It is given as (the number of identical alphabets)/ (alignment length).
"%Gaps" is the gap percentage of aligning a query structure to a subject
structure using BLAST with structural alphabets.
It is given as (the number of gaps)/ (alignment length).
Do detailed structure alignment for structure visualisation/superimposition between query and subject structures.
