Structure Description

Search for entries in the PDB by structure description, as annotated in the COMPND record of the PDB file and the _entity.pdbx_description field of the mmCIF file.

Choose the desired option from the pull down menu ("Contains", "Equals", etc.) and enter the search term in the text box. In most cases, the default "Contains" will be the most useful option (if you choose "Equals" the search term must exactly match the full title).

Example

Select Contains from the pull down menu and type Hemoglobin in the text box. Press "Submit Query". The Query Results Browser page will show all structures that contain Hemoglobin in the structure description.
