Molecular Movements Database

Molecular Movements Database

This outline presents the current database classified by any classification scheme for which data has been compiled. The original schema which separates motions by type of movement is defined on the help page. Thumbnail images appear for motions which have available movies, and link to the best morph for that particular protein.

Many more movies can be seen here, including structures not represented on this page. The movies page also allows searches for protein names or specific PDB IDs.
