[Bioperl-l] Question on extracting Molecular Weight fields from UniProt records

 Hi everybody,

I would like to know if there is a way in which one can extract the value from "Molecular Weight" field of a UniProt Record (for example that value is "140080 Da" for http://www.pir.uniprot.org/cgi-bin/upEntry?id=MSH6_YEAST )

I am able to use Bio::DB::SwissProt to get the length & seq
$seq_length = $seq_object->length()
$sequence_as_a_string = $seq_object->seq();

Is there a similar method to extract the Molecular Weight field?

Thanks in advance,
