[…] We now present the results of our survey of knotting in the Protein Data Bank (PDB), using both sphere closure and virtual closure. We analyse the same set of protein chains indexed by the KnotProt database (i.e. taking only each sequence unique chain in a given protein and rejecting some chains with breaks in their recorded structures, see Methods), additionally discarding chains obsol […]
