I would suggest picking the longest version of the protein.

Hi, Everyone, In protein databases such as NCBI and others. The same protein
often has many different entries (different accession numbers deposited by
different authors at different time). To avoid the redundancy, I need to
pick one entry for each protein to work with. What is the criteria to pick
the "best" one (the most accurate)? Any rule of thumb for a programmer?
Thanks a lot. Ren (rxwang1 at aol.com)
