The mpstruc bulletin board provides, ahead of publication, announcements of new membrane protein structures, and offers links to their entries in the Protein Data Bank.

We invite users of mpstruc to submit new structures released by the Protein Data Bank that have not yet been published. Please send us an e-mail containing the pdb id(s), author list, tentative paper title, and a concise, pertinent description (if appropriate).

Once these structures are published, their entries here will migrate to the mpstruc database page.
