eProtS: Encyclopedia of Protein Structures
The eProtS, Encyclopedia of Protein Structure, is a dictionary with pictures of the protein three-dimensional structures, for understanding the tertiary structures and the biological functions for several selected protein molecules that are particularly important for biology. This Web site can be prepared for non-specialists of protein structures. When the moleculargraphics software, PDBjViewer, is available in your hardware system, you may be able to manipulate the protein molecules on the display interactively by mouse.(IE 5.0(or later) or NN 6.0(or later) are recommended.)
