Figure 1
Legend to the two-dimensional representation as drawn by Privateer, and its correspondence to three-letter codes from the PDB Chemical Component Dictionary. The current version of Privateer adopts all features of the Essentials notation except the bond–angle relation, which will be available in a forthcoming update to the software. Those sugars typically found in both anomeric forms in covalently bound glycans have both three-letter codes assigned to the same shape, e.g. GLC (α-D-glucopyranose) and BGC (β-D-glucopyranose) to a blue circle. The anomeric form is mentioned explicitly for those cases where just one form is present in the PDB. As the SVG file format supports tooltips (messages that get displayed when the mouse hovers a graphical component), all information related to the linkages is displayed there in order to keep the diagrams minimal. This figure features all three-letter codes recognised by Glycoblocks up to the date of this publication.
