I was wondering how I should cite a structure found in a PDB-file. Both how it should be cited in text and how to cite it in the reference list.
First some explanation. At our department at the university, it is customary to cite with the authors name, i.e.:
"... the protein works this way (Berg et al., 2002)"
The litterature can then be found in the reference list as:
"Berg, J. M., Tymoczko, J. L. & Stryer L. (2002) Biochemistry 5th edtion, W. H. Freeman and Company, New York"
So lets say I have found a 3D-structure of Lysozyme, 1GE2.
How should it be cited? Both in the text and in the reference list. According to the link, the primary citation is
"Takano, K., Yamagata, Y., Yutani, K. Role of non-glycine residues in left-handed helical conformation for the conformational stability of human lysozyme Proteins, v.44, pp.233-243, 2001"
But is this enough? Should the PDB-file "1GE2" be included somehow? How about when the file has been revided?
Thanks in advanced,
