The quaternary structure (QS) of a protein is determined by measuring its molecular weight in solution. The data have to be extracted from the literature, and they may be missing even for proteins that have a crystal structure reported in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). The PDB and other databases derived from it report QS information that either was obtained from the depositors or is based on an analysis of the contacts between polypeptide chains in the crystal, and this frequently differs from… CONTINUE READING
