Method Data was extracted from protein quaternary structure (PQS) file server (http://pqs.ebi.ac.uk/) which is a database of oligomers found in the Protein Data Bank (PDB)
Comments "In August 2004, the PQS contained nearly 30,000 structures, comprising 32% monomers, 29% homodimers and 18% higher-order homooligomers. The remaining 21% of structures are heterooligomers."
