Starting January 27, 2015, RCSB PDB and PDBj will only accept X-ray depositions submitted using the wwPDB Deposition Tool
Depositing large structures?
If your structure exceeds the size of the traditional PDB file format limits (>62 chains or >99,999 atoms), please prepare your deposition as a single PDBx/mmCIF file using recent versions of CCP4 (REFMAC > 5.8) or Phenix (> 1.8.2) before submitting your structure with the wwPDB Deposition System.
The following data deposition tools and instructions can make your structure deposition easy, complete and accurate:
The Validation Server can also be used to monitor improvements made to your structural model before you begin the deposition process.
