  • idetical with deposited unit
  • defined by author
  • Evidence: none, Assembly of the saposin A molecules was determined based on clear electron density in the cryo-EM map, low pass-filtered to 5 Angstrom resolution using the crystal structure of saposin A (PDB ID: 2DOB) as the starting model for model building and refinement.

Jul 12, 2017. Major update of PDB

Major update of PDB

  • wwPDB released updated PDB data conforming to the new PDBx/mmCIF dictionary. This is a major update changing the version number from 4 to 5, and with Remediation, in which all the entries are updated. See below links for details.
  • In this update, many items about electron microscopy experimental information are reorganized (e.g. em_software). Now, EM Navigator and Yorodumi are based on the updated data.
