Look for REMARK 350 of respective pdb coordinate file .

For example:

http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/files/3O26.pdb 
REMARK 350 BIOMOLECULE: 1                                                       
REMARK 350 AUTHOR DETERMINED BIOLOGICAL UNIT: MONOMERIC                         
REMARK 350 SOFTWARE DETERMINED QUATERNARY STRUCTURE: MONOMERIC                  
REMARK 350 SOFTWARE USED: PISA                                                  
REMARK 350 APPLY THE FOLLOWING TO CHAINS: A                                     
REMARK 350   BIOMT1   1  1.000000  0.000000  0.000000        0.00000            
REMARK 350   BIOMT2   1  0.000000  1.000000  0.000000        0.00000            
REMARK 350   BIOMT3   1  0.000000  0.000000  1.000000        0.00000
