Anyone have any idea how to use NCBI's entrez command line (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK25501/) to extract feature information about a specific protein query? Specifically, I need to find ECid's for given queries.
For example, if I want to programmatically access the ECID for the following protein (Citrate Synthase, EC_number=126.96.36.199), how do I do so?:
I've need to do this for a large number of proteins, but for now just getting it for one would be great...I've been using queries like "esearch -db protein -query 'RRJ88579.1' | efetch -format docsum," but this does not return the EC number.
