I'm encountering some difficulties with how to use it and would very much appreciate some help from you guys.

Basically I have 2 problems: 1) When I search a protein sequence into their clustered database (Sequence search button) I get to a page with many results. What's the reason why if I directly search for one of those accession ids using the search box on the homepage it doesn't find anything? (e.g. MGYP000524092069 won't work)

2) Since the search results are cluster representatives, how do I get to the whole cluster items?
