It boggles why anyone would care to know that, (and if that means
monomeric or active multimer), regardless the PDB database
(http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/search/advSearch.do) under its "advanced
search" has Molecular Weight as one of its query types.  Currently it
"evaluates subquery" of between 80000 and 90000 Da at 1587 structures.
You then would have to limit (sub-query) those to human sources.  This
is -not- a list of "all the known human" proteins but it's not the worst
first approximation.

good luck
