How is it possible that multiple proteins maps to single transcript ids ?

Hi all,

I've downloaded transcript mapping to PDB annotation from GENECODE

When I look at the table, i see that one transcript id maps to multiple proteins. I was pondering about the reason behind of it. Here are some examples:

                  V1   V2
1  ENST00000567584.1 1UJU
2  ENST00000567584.1 1WHA
3  ENST00000567584.1 1X5Q
4  ENST00000567584.1 2W4F
5  ENST00000569114.1 1UJU
6  ENST00000569114.1 1WHA
7  ENST00000569114.1 1X5Q
8  ENST00000569114.1 2W4F
9  ENST00000564122.1 1UJU
10 ENST00000564122.1 1WHA

A single transcript can have multiple ORFs that can give rise to multiple protein sequences.

It helps to look up the definitions for each:

https://www.ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Transcript/Idhistory?t=ENST00000569114

https://www.ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Transcript/Idhistory?t=ENST00000567584

Note how in this case both are marked as "retired".

In summary the data mapping stores all mappings, even historical ones that are now obsolete.

This problem should be addressed in next Ensembl release: C: Ensembl ID converter not working?
