3D Structure Viewers

View PDB structures in 3D using NGL from any entry's Structure Summary page.




PoseView

PoseView images are 2D diagrams that show a ligand and interacting residues.

Black dashed lines indicate hydrogen bonds, salt bridges, and metal interactions. Green solid line show hydrophobic interactions and green dashed lines show π-π and π-cation interactions.

Access PoseView images in the Ligand Chemical Component section on an entry's Structure Summary.

Learn more about PoseView.



Protein Feature View

Provides a graphical summary of a full-length protein sequence from UniProt and how it corresponds to PDB entries. It also loads annotations from external databases (such as Pfam) and homology models information from the Protein Model Portal. Annotations visualizing predicted regions of protein disorder and hydrophobic regions are displayed.

Learn more about Protein Feature View.

Examples: Breast Cancer Type 1 ProteinGag-Pol Polyprotein, and Hemoglobin Alpha (shown image).

This feature is available from the Molecular Description widget on Structure Summary pages and by entering a UniProt ID below.



Human Gene View

Illustrates the correspondences between the human genome and 3D structure. All human genes have been mapped to representative PDB structure protein chains (selected from sequence clusters at 40% sequence identity) to show which regions of a gene are available in PDB coordinates.

Learn more about Gene View.

Examples: Breast Cancer 1 (early onset) and Hemoglobin, Alpha 1 (shown image).

This feature is available from the Molecular Description widget on Structure Summary pages and by entering an HGNC Human Gene Symbol below (examples).



Pathway View

Explore metabolic pathways maps that identify pathway components with PDB structures and homology models.

Maps can be accessed from the Protein View (see example P29401), and the main Pathway View page.
