The Protein Feature View provides a graphical summary of a
full-length protein sequence from UniProtKB
and how it relates to PDB
entries. It also loads annotations from external databases such as
domain annotations from SCOP
and SCOPe, or
regions for which homology models are available from the
Protein Model Portal. There are also
tracks of annotations available that
visualize predicted regions of protein disorder (computed with
and hydrophobic regions, as computed using a sliding window approach.
Predicted disordered and hydrophobic regions are in red, ordered and
hydrophilic regions are in blue.
For human proteins, that can be mapped to the human genome, a track describes the projection
of the protein structure onto the genome.
By default representative PDB entries are being displayed that give
an overview for which regions of the
UniProtKB sequence PDB entries
are available. The view can be expanded to show all available PDB
entries (which can be many in some cases) by pressing the
"+" icon or by selecting the "Extended" menu
View An example Protein Feature View.
The header section of the Protein Feature View shows information about the Function, Catalytic Activity and subunit structure (if available) from
UniProtKB. It also has an option to select Protein Feature Views from related organisms with the same gene name.
The Action button has an option to map sequence motifs in the Protein Feature View as shown below.
