Figure 3
X-ray diffraction pattern (left) of fibrillin from bovine zonular filaments (right) recorded at beamline 2.1 of the Daresbury synchrotron. The first three orders of the 1/56 nm repeat meridional diffraction are shown here: the predominant third diffraction order indicates suprafibrillar packing (see text), the strong equatorial reflection corresponds to the side-by-side interactions of the fibrillin microfibrils. The figure on the left is reproduced with permission by Rockefeller University Press from Wess, Purslow, Sherratt et al. (1998BB46). The figure on the right shows an enucleated bovine eye lens surrounded by ciliary zonules.
