The Protein Data Bank (PDB; http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/ ) is the single worldwide archive of structural data of biological macromolecules. This paper describes the goals of the PDB, the systems in place for data deposition and access, how to obtain further information, and near-term plans for the future development of the resource.
The PDB has created systems for the processing, exchange, query, and distribution of data that will enable many aspects of high throughput structural genomics.
The cytoplasmic domain of classical cadherins is tightly associated with three proteins termed alpha-, beta- and gamma-catenin. These accessory proteins are of central importance for the adhesive properties of this class of cell adhesion molecules. In order to examine the molecular architecture of the cadherin-catenin complex in more detail we have… (More)
The Protein Data Bank (PDB; http://www.pdb.org/) is the single worldwide archive of structural data of biological macromolecules. This paper describes the progress that has been made in validating all data in the PDB archive and in releasing a uniform archive for the community. We have now produced a collection of mmCIF data files for the PDB archive… (More)
The Protein Data Bank (PDB; http://www.pdb.org) is the primary source of information on the 3D structure of biological macromolecules. The PDB's mandate is to disseminate this information in the most usable form and as widely as possible. The current query and distribution system is described and an alpha version of the future re-engineered system… (More)
The central role of protein kinases in signal transduction pathways has generated intense interest in targeting these enzymes for a wide range of therapeutic indications. Here we report a method for identifying and quantifying protein kinases in any biological sample or tissue from any species. The procedure relies on acyl phosphate-containing nucleotides,… (More)
Protein kinases are intensely studied mediators of cellular signaling, yet important questions remain regarding their regulation and in vivo properties. Here, we use a probe-based chemoprotemics platform to profile several well studied kinase inhibitors against >200 kinases in native cell proteomes and reveal biological targets for some of these inhibitors.… (More)
The Protein Data Bank (PDB; http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/) is the single worldwide archive of structural data of biological macromolecules. This paper describes the data uniformity project that is underway to address the inconsistency in PDB data.
MOTIVATION Biological databases, with their rapidly expanding contents, are indispensable tools in the quest to understand more about biological function. However, a serious user of a database that comprises a large collection of data, collected over a long period, will likely be struck by the inconsistency in reporting individual items of data. This paper… (More)
