Searches structures by macromolecule name or synonym.
Macromolecule names and synonyms are annotated in PDBx (mmCIF items: _entity.pdbx_description and _entity_name_com.name) and
in the associated Uniprot entries (recommended, alternative names and short names)
All possible names and synonyms are scanned for matches of the input term either as distinct tokens or as a prefix of other tokens.
This returns all structures that contain hemoglobin in the macromolecule name
This returns all structure that contain actin in the macromolecule name, including structures whose macromolecule name contains a word like actin,
actinin, acting etc.
