This new version of ADIT (2.0) indicates file format errors with suggestions for
solutions; automatically validates the structure; checks for
consistency between sequence and coordinates; allows easier
organization of sequence information; and simplifies entering author,
title and citation information. It is designed to improve data quality
and processsing efficiency.
Beginning June 14, this new version of ADIT will become the default site for
deposition on selected days each week for testing. The date of full deployment
of this tool will depend upon the results of this testing.

For structures solved by Electron Microscopy, first deposit the 3D map at
EMDB and then follow the link provided to deposit the coordinates.

instructions that describe how to deposit X-ray,
Microscopy structures are available. Coordinates may be deposited
as either mmCIF or PDB formatted files.
To ensure that all tools will work with minimal error, the format requirements for depositing structures in PDB format are:
- Each polymer must be assigned a unique alphanumeric chain ID (A-Z, 0-9, a-z) in column 22.
- Each residue must be assigned a unique residue number within that chain ID.
- If there are alternate conformations in the structure, the alternate
conformation indicator must be provided in column 17.
- Atoms with the same coordinates may not be present in the same MODEL.
- All polymer chains should have a TER card at the
end. No TER cards should be included at the end of non-polymer residues
(such as ions, ligands, waters).
- There should be only one END card at the end of
- Each record must start in the first column.
- Record types (such as COMPND, ATOM, SEQRES) must be capitalized.
- If the entry contains ANISOU, SIGATM, or SIGUIJ lines, there must
be a corresponding ATOM record.
- Depositions with multiple models should include MODEL and ENDMDL
cards. The models should be listed sequentially in columns 11-14.
- Chain IDs used in the SEQRES records should correspond to those in the coordinates.
- The sf file can either be in mmCIF, ASCII, or mtz formats and should at least include h, k, l, F, SigmaF (and/or I and SigmaI) and test flags.
Definitions and format are available in DOC (48 KB) and PDF (24 KB) format.
