We also use the US portal. Can't speak to the solvent content as we never
had a value much over 70%.
As for the resolution range, I never saw any place to enter this
user-defined resolution of the structure.
As far as i know it comes from the record:
REMARK 200 RESOLUTION RANGE HIGH (A) : 1.200
which should be the high resolution used in refinement.
I suppose in an "additional remark" you could give the
optical resolution or the resolution of 90% complete at I/sig=2.
Or the title could be "The 2.2A resolution structure of protein x",
never mind that there were a few reflections used at 1.7A.

When depositing I called the resolution 2.5 as a rough average of resolution in all 3 directions, but now PDB is advertising it as 2.2, which is misleading.
>> I'm afraid I may not have paid enough attention to the fine print on this issue - is the PDB now automatically advertising the "resolution" of a structure as that of the outermost flyspeck used in refinement, regardless of more cautious assertions by the authors? If so, I object!
