Second-harmonic generation correlation spectroscopy for characterizing translational diffusing motion of protein nanocrystals

Second-harmonic generation correlation spectroscopy was developed as a tool for the characterization of the diffusing protein nanocrystals.

Accepted 13 May 2016

Structural basis for acyl-group discrimination by human Gcn5L2

Structures of human Gcn5L2 bound to propionyl-CoA and butyryl-CoA show how the active site accommodates different acyl modifications and explain why butyryl-CoA acts as a competitive inhibitor.

Ab initio phasing by molecular averaging in real space with new criteria: application to structure determination of a betanodavirus

A two-step process of phase determination in the X-ray structural analysis of the coat protein of a betanodavirus is described. A new indicator, the free fraction, for molecular averaging in real space is introduced to effectively evaluate the phasing power in order to enhance the success of determining new structures.

Neutron and X-ray single-crystal diffraction from protein microcrystals via magnetically oriented microcrystal arrays in gels

Single-crystal neutron and X-ray diffraction from lysozyme microcrystals magnetically aligned in gels are reported. Neutron diffraction spots were observed to a resolution of 3.4 Å and the crystal structure was solved at a resolution of 1.76 Å using X-rays at room temperature.
