Figure 6
Change in BDamage between low- and high-dose datasets for different residue atoms. The change in the median BDamage for ten groups of atoms of the six protein structures before and after an X-ray burn is shown. Insulin does not have ASP or MET residues. Different proteins show different BDamage patterns. BDamage tends to increase for most atoms shown, including ASP Oδ, CYS Sγ, GLU Cδ and O, MET C and Sδ. This indicates that these atoms damage faster than others within the same protein, and correlates well with the known specific damage decay pattern of amino acid residues.
