Welcome to the PDBbind-CN Database!

Introduction. The aim of the PDBbind database is to provide a comprehensive collection of experimentally measured binding affinity data for all biomolecular complexes deposited in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). It provides an essential linkage between the energetic and structural information of those complexes, which is helpful for various computational and statistical studies on molecular recognition, drug discovery, and many more (see the list of published applications of PDBbind).

The PDBbind database was originally developed by Prof. Shaomeng Wang's group at the University of Michigan in USA, which was first released to the public in May, 2004. This database is now maintained and further developed by Prof. Renxiao Wang's group at College of Pharmacy, Fudan University in China. The PDBbind database is updated on an annual base to keep up with the growth of the Protein Data Bank.

Current release. The current release, i.e. version 2020, is based on the contents of PDB officially released at the first week in 2020. This release provides binding affinity data for a total of 23,496 biomolecular complexes in PDB, including protein-ligand (19,443), protein-protein (2,852), protein-nucleic acid (1,052), and nucleic acid-ligand complexes (149). Compared to the last release (v.2019), binding data included in this release have increased by ~10%. All binding data are curated by ourselves from ~40,500 original references.

A special remark on the PDBbind core set. Compilation of the PDBbind core set aims at providing a relatively small set of high-quality protein-ligand complexes for validating docking/scoring methods. The data set is selected based on the contents of PDBbind. In particular, this data set has served as the primary test set in the popular Comparative Assessment of Scoring Functions (CASF) benchmark developed by our group. The PDBbind core set is not included in the PDBbind data package because it is not updated annually as PDBbind itself. Users can obtain the PDBbind core set by downloading the CASF data package at http://www.pdbbind.org.cn/casf.php. The latest available version of the PDBbind core set is included in CASF-2016, which consists of 285 protein-ligand complexes.

Accessibility. The basic information of each complex in PDBbind is completely open for access (see the [BROWSE] page). Users are required to register under a license agreement in order to utilize the searching functions provided on this web site or to download PDBbind data sets in bulk. Registration is currently free of charge to all academic and industrial users. Please go to the [REGISTER] page and follow the instructions to complete registration.

We are very grateful to Prof. Zenghui (John) Zhang's group at the East China Normal University for their aid to version 2015, 2016, and 2017.

News & Notice
