Every PDB structure is in the MMDB, NCBI's value-added molecular 
structure database, and every structure in the MMDB is linked to 
an amino acid sequence in the protein subdivision of GenBank.  If 
there is a gene entry corresponding to the protein, there will be 
a link to this as well (though its not guaranteed that the gene 
has been sequenced for every PDB chain).  You can get all of this 
from the Entrez web interface just by starting with a structure 
entry and then using the pull-down menu to select "protein links" 
or "nucleotide links".
