ABG: Directory of 3D structures of antibodies
Statistics and Aim
The first 3D-structure of an antibody was solved early in the 1970's (Poljak
et al., 1972). Two decades after, in the beginning of 1990's, the number of structures
began to increase exponentially:
Today (last update: February, 21, 2001), there are 365 structures:
That means 2.5% of all the known and public structures!
We expect 78 new structures at the end of this year:
|X-ray Diffraction and other
To have a quick access to this ever-increasing information, here we offer the directory
of all the antibodies of known and public 3D-structure. In the directory, each PDB entry has a hyperlink to
the original source.
The VH and VL sequences were aligned and are reported in the VH and VL alignments.
