PIR NRL_3D Database

Tue Dec 10 18:11:00 EST 1991

The last release of the NBRF Protein Identification Release in ASCII card image
format failed to include the NRL_3D database of protein sequence information
extracted from the Brookhaven Protein Data Bank.  This file has been prepared
and is available for FTP from the service maintained by Dan Davison at the
University of Houston.
The file is available in compressed form from menudo.uh.edu in
[On January 1 this will change to ftp.bchs.uh.edu (]
Future releases of the PIR in ASCII format will include this database which has
appeared in the last two PIR releases in VAX/VMS format.  A brief description
of the NRL_3D database follows.


                      Release 6.1, November 18, 1991
   Corresponding to Brookhaven Protein Data Bank Release 57, July 1991

                   1,045 sequences      177,811 residues

NRL_3D is a sequence--structure database derived from the 3 dimensional
structure of proteins deposited with the Brookhaven National Laboratory's
Protein Data Bank.  This database was conceived, developed and tested by
K. Namboodiri, N. Pattabiraman, A. Lowrey, and B. Gaber at the Naval
Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C. and incorporated into the *PIR System
by David George at the National Biomedical Research Foundation, Washington,
DC. This version was constructed via software developed by Masami Kusunoki,
of the Institute for Protein Research, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, and
John S. Garavelli of the National Biomedical Research Foundation, Washington,

This database may be redistributed without prior consent, provided that
this notice be given to each user and that the words "Derived from" shall
precede this notice if the database has been altered by the redistributor.

*PIR is a registered mark of NBRF. The PIR is supported by NIH and NSF.
