IMGT/3Dstructure DB and IMGT/StructuralQuery -- A Database and A Tool for Immunoglobulin, T Cell Receptor and MHC Structural Data

What you can do:
Search for structural information on immune system proteins.
  • IMGT/3Dstructure-DB is the three-dimensional (3D) structure database of IMGT, the international ImMunoGenetics information system that is acknowledged as the global reference in immunogenetics and immunoinformatics.
  • It contains 3D structures of immunoglobulins (IG) or antibodies, T cell receptors (TR), major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins, antigen receptor/antigen complexes (IG/Ag, TR/peptide/MHC) of vertebrates; 3D structures of related proteins of the immune system (RPI) of vertebrates and invertebrates, belonging to the immunoglobulin and MHC superfamilies (IgSF and MhcSF, respectively) and found in complexes with IG, TR or MHC. IMGT/3Dstructure-DB data are annotated according to the IMGT criteria, using IMGT/DomainGapAlign, and based on the IMGT-ONTOLOGY concepts and axioms.
  • It provides IMGT gene and allele identification (CLASSIFICATION), region and domain delimitations (DESCRIPTION), amino acid positions according to the IMGT unique numbering (NUMEROTATION) that are used in IMGT/3Dstructure-DB cards, results of contact analysis and renumbered flat files.
  • In its Web version, the IMGT/DomainGapAlign tool analyses amino acid sequences, per domain.
  • Coupled to the IMGT/Collier-de-Perles tool, it provides help for antibody engineering and humanization design based on complementarity determining region (CDR) grafting as it precisely defines the standardized framework regions (FR-IMGT) and CDR-IMGT.
