Resource for structure related information on transmembrane proteins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Transmembrane proteins are involved in a wide variety of vital biological processes including transport of water-soluble molecules, flow of information and energy production. Despite significant efforts to determine the structures of these proteins, only a few thousand solved structures are known so far. Here, we review the various resources for structure-related information on these types of proteins ranging from the 3D structure to the topology and from the up-to-date databases to the various Internet sites and servers dealing with structure prediction and structure analysis. Abbreviations: 3D, three dimensional; PDB, Protein Data Bank; TMP, transmembrane protein.
