Molecule structures can be imported in the workbench from the Protein Data Bank using the "Download" function:
Toolbar | Download () | Search for PDB structures at NCBI ()
Type the molecule name or accession number into the search field and click on the "Start search" button (as shown in figure 12.1). The search hits will appear in the table below the search field.
Select the molecule structure of interest and click on the button labeled "Download and Open" (see figure 12.1) or double click on the relevant row in the table to open the protein structure.
Pressing the "Download and Save" button will save the molecule structure at a user defined destination in the Navigation Area.
The button "Open at NCBI" links directly to the structure summary page at NCBI. Clicking this button will open individual NCBI pages describing each of the selected molecule structures.
