PDBsum is database that provides an overview of the contents of each 3D macromolecular structure deposited in the Protein Data Bank.[1][2][3][4]

Each structure in the PDBsum database includes an image of structure, molecular components contained in the complex, enzyme reaction diagram if appropriate, Gene Ontology functional assignments, a 1D sequence annotated by Pfam and InterPro domain assignments, description of bound molecules and graphic showing interactions between protein and secondary structure, schematic diagrams of protein-protein interactions, analysis of clefts contained within the structure and links to external databases.
