    Resource Category : Databases -> Structure Databases -> Protein structure

    Brief Description : ArchDB ( is a relational database of classified structural motifs, consisting of one loop plus its bracing secondary structures. Motifs have been classified using an improved version[1] of ArchType[2], an automated loop classification program. ArchType has been successfully applied to the SCOP95 set from SCOP 1.65 release[3]. The previous non-redundant classification[1], based on the SCOP40 set, has also been updated. Currently, the SCOP90-based classification contains 46894 motifs clustered into 2029 classes and 5111 subclasses, and the SCOP40-based classification contains 24356 motifs clustered into 1221 classes and 3575 subclasses. In addition, a manually curated classification of a subset of kinase proteins, ArchKI, has been included[4]. Functional annotations concerning residues found within clustered motifs has been incorporated into ArchDB, such as small ligand contacts (within 6.0 Å) and PDB SITE and ACTSITE records[5]. SCOP domain classification and protein functional descriptors such as EC numbers[6] and GO terms[7] are also reported. Subclasses displaying conserved functional or structural annotations (above 75%) are reported.
