Figure 8
Schematics showing the effect of solution extruded from a crystal during cooling on mosaicity. (a) Representation of four domains in a protein crystal, at room temperature, each of length, width and height L. (b) Representation of two crystal domains during cooling: the solvent (blue) flows a length L and is extruded into the space between the domains, displacing each domain by some angle. (c) Geometric representation of solvent extruded between domains during cooling. Each domain is displaced by the exiting solvent by an angle θ, giving an angle of 2θ for the volume of solution extruded between two crystal domains of length L.
