ProCarbDB : a database of carbohydrate-binding proteins

ProCarbD is a freely accessible, userfriendly database that comprises of 5242 true protein-carbohydrate complexes. Unlike the Protein Data Bank (PDB), ProCarb clearly distinguishes between the complete carbohydrate ligands and their monomeric units. In ProCarbDB, the complete carbohydrate ligands are annotated and all their interactions are displayed. Users can also select any protein residue in the proximity of the ligand to inspect its interactions with the carbohydrate ligand and with other neighboring protein residues.
