An on-line, searchable, relational database with select structural and functional information on membrane proteins and peptides

 

Data comes from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and other databases, and from the literature

 

Covers integral, anchored and peripheral membrane proteins and peptides 

 

Structures are based on x-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron diffraction and cryo-electron microscopy

 

Searchable on-line by protein characteristic, structure method, crystallization technique, detergent, temperature, pH, author, etc.

 

Statistical analysis of MPDB records can be performed and viewed on-line

 

Hot-linked to the PDB and Pfam for viewing sequence, 3-D structure and domain architecture, and for downloading coordinates

 

Updated weekly in parallel with the Protein Data Bank
