This tool uses the following databases and tools:
H.M. Berman, J. Westbrook, Z. Feng, G. Gilliland, T.N. Bhat, H. Weissig, I.N. Shindyalov, P.E. Bourne (2000) The Protein Data Bank Nucleic Acids Research, 28: 235-242.
We use the REST-full webinterface of RCSB as well as download full entries.
UniProt: a hub for protein information Nucleic Acids Res. 43: D204-D212 (2015).
UniProt information is retrieved via its XML entry format
The SIFTS database, maintained at the EBI, provides a mapping between PDB entries and a reference UniProt entry, as well as other datasources.
BLAST tool: NCBI BLAST Download, described here: Camacho C., Coulouris G., Avagyan V., Ma N., Papadopoulos J., Bealer K., Madden T.L.. (2009) "BLAST+: architecture and applications." BMC Bioinformatics. 10:421.
The BLAST tool is used to search for related UniProt entries and to map features of these entries onto the reference entry. In addition the BLAST tool is used to find UniProt entries in case the user provides a sequence. From these UniProt entries PDB entries are mapped.
