Retrieve a 3D Structure record from MMDB → link to similar structures
If your structure of interest is already available in the Molecular Modeling Database (MMDB), a VAST search has been conducted and the precalculated VAST, and VAST+, results are accessible from the structure's summary page. To view the precalculated results:
(1) Retrieve a structure record of interest by PDB ID, MMDB ID, or text term.
(3) Click on the "Similar Structures: VAST+" link near the upper right corner of the summary page. That will open the new VAST+ search results page, which lists the query structure followed by similar structures, ranked by the degree of similarity to the query structure's biological unit.
As a shortcut to the VAST+ results for your structure of interest, simply enter its PDB ID or MMDB ID in the form below:
If you prefer to see the original VAST results, which focus on similarities between individual protein molecules or 3D domains within the query structure and hits, then click on the "Original VAST" button near the upper right corner of the VAST+ search results page.
Alternatively, you can access original VAST results for individual proteins within your query structure by following these steps: open the query structure's summary page; scroll down to the table of molecules and interactions; view the "show annotation" graphic for any protein molecule of interest; then click on the bar graphic for the overall protein molecule or for any 3D domain it contains. That will display a list of other structures that are similar in shape to the specific molecule or 3D domain you selected;
