New Images for Transmembrane Proteins
New images for transmembrane proteins
RCSB PDB provides additional annotations and query options for transmembrane proteins.
New high resolution images for transmembrane proteins were created using information from the Orientations of Proteins in Membranes (OPM) database.
Molecular graphics and analyses performed with UCSF ChimeraX, developed by the Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics at the University of California, San Francisco (supported by NIGMS P41-GM103311).
Data source: Orientations of Proteins in Membranes (OPM) database
Data about the orientation of transmembrane proteins are provided by the Orientations of Proteins in Membranes (OPM) database, when available. OPM is updated less frequently than the PDB, so not all transmembrane proteins will have these images.
Types of images
These transmembrane images (when available) are the first image shown on the Structure Summary page. Membranes are represented as red (outside) and blue (inside) planes. Images for the biological assembly and asymmetric unit are also available.
