In addition to nearly 200,000 experimentally-determined PDB structures, RCSB.org now offers access to ~1 million Computed Structure Models (CSMs) from AlphaFoldDB and RoseTTAFold (from ModelArchive). Both software tools build on decades of methodological research on structure prediction and rely on open access to the immense number of sequences in genomic sequence databases and to the PDB archive. This release includes the pre-packaged collection of 999,255 AlphaFold models released on 01-Jun-2022 (based on model organism proteomes; global health proteomes; Swiss-Prot sequences; and MANE (Matched Annotation from NCBI and EMBL-EBI) and 1,106 protein complexes produced by RoseTTAFold and AlphaFold2 from the ModelArchive.
Only experimentally-determined PDB structures are included in search results by default. Move the "Include CSM" from gray- to cyan-colored slider to activate.
Experimental structures and CSMs are clearly identified throughout the website: a dark-blue flask icon is used for PDB structures and a cyan computer icon for CSMs.
A confidence score called “predicted local distance difference test” (pLDDT) is computed for each amino acid residue to estimate how well the method has converged (i.e., how well the predicted structure agrees with multiple sequence alignment data and PDB structure information). This pLDDT score is used to color 2D and 3D views of CSMs and to sort search results.
RCSB.org users can query, organize, visualize, analyze, and compare experimental structures and CSMs side-by-side:
RCSB PDB will continue to develop resources to support exploration of experimental PDB structures and CSMs; feedback is greatly appreciated.
Learn about the protein structure-related tools, visualizations, and workflows that have been integrated into KBase on Thursday November 10, 2022 (1:00 - 5:00 pm EDT).
