QUESTION

I was wondering how many human proteins have a solved 3D structure. Is there a database with only human proteins? I looked at pdb but couldn't find a filter.

ANSWER

6405 proteins mapping to 5220 genes, according to Ensembl.

In Ensembl's BioMart, you can select the PDB ID as external reference. Export the results and count the unique proteins/genes that have a PDB ID.
