Explore Antibiotic Resistance in 3D
The Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database (CARD) contains curated information about resistance genes, their products and associated phenotypes. Antibiotic resistance gene data classifications have been mapped to PDB sequences that are close homologs to sequences present in CARD.
RCSB.org can access these classifications using the Browse Annotations: CARD tool, through the Annotations Tab on Structure Summary pages (e.g., PDB ID 8EHH), and by searching by Antibiotic Resistance Ontology (ARO) numbers (e.g., ARO:3000001 for beta-lactamases)
Browse Annotations: CARD
This feature offers access to structures in the PDB archive by browsing different hierarchical trees.
Structure Summary Annotations Tab
Related structures will have CARD information included in the Annotations Tab.
Advanced Searching by Antibiotic Resistance Ontology (ARO)
Exact and close matches to the resistance genes were identified in PDB entries and annotated with relevant ARO identifiers and additional information antibiotics resistance related information. For example, you can search for all PDB sequences annotated as "determinant of antibiotic resistance" searching on (ARO:3000000).
