XAFS studies of nitrogenase: the MoFe and VFe proteins and the use of crystallographic coordinates in three-dimensional EXAFS data analysis

R. W. Strange, R. R. Eady, D. Lawson and S. S. Hasnain

Synopsis: Crystallographic models of metal centres in metalloproteins at less than atomic resolution can be improved by applying EXAFS-derived distance restraints during the early stages of refinement. This is demonstrated for the Mo coordination of the FeMoco cluster of Klebsiella pneumoniae nitrogenase.
