S-SAD Lysozym-Phasing am PILATUS3 R 1M

This example illustrates data collection and S-SAD phasing of lysozyme using the PILATUS3 R 1M, a hybrid pixel array detector. The PILATUS3 R 1M can be offered as a drop-in replacement for existing R-AXIS detectors, for those labs that want a large format detector with faster throughput.

Data were collected for a lysozyme crystal on the XtaLAB PRO configured with an FR-X microfocus rotating anode generator for a total of 6 minutes.

Following scaling, the overall redundancy was 11.9. The structure was easily solved using S-SAD method in HKL-3000R. HKL-3000R used SHELXC and SHELXD to find sites using data to 2.0 Å resolution.

Fourteen sites were anomalous sites were located with occupancies greater than 0.6. Following phasing and density modification using MlPhare and DM the FOM was 0.77. Five rounds of ARP/wARP were used to trace the protein with 96% of the atoms correctly placed. Refmac was used to refine the structure with some manual model adjustments and addition of the remaining residues and water molecules. The final R and Rfree for the structure were 15.1% and 20.1%, respectively. Additional details of the processing and structure solution are provided below.
