Why is there a chloride ion in this 3D model?

It is a crystallisation artefact. Namely, the protein are placed in a condition where they fall out of solution without aggregating a gloop (as happens in most well in xstal trial) and to pack as a ...

Receptor-ligand database

Have you tried STRING? It's a publicly available protein-protein interaction database, so it won't be a complete picture. Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) is really nice but is a paid service. ...
