    NRL_3D Contains entries for which an X-Ray crystal structure exists
    in Brookhaven. The codes for these entries start with NRL_ followed by
    the Brookhaven database code.

    Note:
  
    1. Starting with OWL release 26.0, only the sequences from NRL_3D that
       DO NOT occur in other sequence databases are included.
       One additional line is included in the reference file that
       provides a cross reference to the corresponding entry in the
       PRINTS Protein Finger Print database.
  
    2. Starting with OWL release 26.2, the Genbank entries are extracted
       from the translations in the NCBI supplied Genbank files 

    3. Starting with OWL release 26.3.
       One additional line is included in the reference file that
       provides a cross reference to the corresponding entry in
       NRL_3D (Brookhaven code).

    4. Starting with OWL release 27.1 sequences from PIR4 are included
