I-SAD phasing of the HIV integrase core domain using data collected on the XtaLAB Synergy-S

AppNote PX021 Using the XtaLAB Synergy-S X-ray diffractometer for I-SAD phasing

Background

The XtaLAB Synergy-S is our microfocus sealed-tube 4-circle diffractometer for small molecule and macromolecular crystallography. It features three new technologies in a compact cabinet that will fit into any home laboratory: microfocus PhotonJet-S sources (with Cu, Mo, or Ag targets), an ultrafast (10 degrees per second) Kappa goniometer, and a HyPix-6000HE hybrid photon counting detector with 0.1 mm by 0.1 mm pixels. Here, we collected an overnight data set on a crystal of the HIV integrase core domain (IN) to demonstrate iodine SAD phasing on a real-world laboratory sample.
