About Protein Viewer
The Protein Viewer visualizes the proteins that feature in an article.
The Protein Viewer provides authors and readers with many benefits. It:
- Visualizes proteins automatically, so the author does not need to take any action
- Lets readers interact with protein structures featured in the article
The Protein Viewer automatically picks up protein identifiers mentioned in the article (with a standard Protein Data Bank (PDB) code) and displays interactive 3D models. The 3D models are obtained from the RCSB Protein Data Bank (PDB).
How to use the Protein Viewer:
- Choose the protein structure you want to view from the thumbnail menu
- Open the Protein Viewer in a new window by clicking on the detach button in the top right-hand corner
- Resize the viewing area by dragging its right-bottom corner
- Scroll around the viewing area by mousing over the directional arrows
- Use the controls below the Viewer to control the image, or right-mouse click on the viewing area to access additional functionality
- Scale the model, change the background color, experiment with different display and color schemes, apply surface rendering, switch between “biological assembly” and “asymmetric union” and view protein structures in 3D stereo mode
