The IUPAC recommendations for biochemical nomenclature (1-3) imply a Conceptual Data Model (CDM) for protein structure. The following entity-relationship diagram describes the implied conceptual data model and is easily implemented in commercial database programs such as Microsoft Access and MySQL.
As a demonstration of the validity and usefulness of the proposed CDM we provide an Access implementation for download which has been populated with experimental data from the Protein Data Bank. Analysis of the CDM is given in: Fox-Erlich, S., Martyn, T.O., Ellis, H.J.C., & Gryk, M.R. Delineation and analysis of the conceptual data model implied by the "IUPAC Recommendations for Biochemical Nomenclature." Protein Sci 2004 13, 2559-2563. PUBMED: 15295113
