The Small Molecules section of an entry’s Structure Summary page offers multiple tools for ligand visualization in 2D and 3D.
A new option uses NGL to display the ligand molecule and all residues within 5 Angstrom. The vdW surface of the ligand highlights the occupied volume. The name and number of interacting residues are labeled. From this 3D view, users can access additional ligands in an entry using the Interaction dropdown menu.
