Forthcoming article in Acta Crystallographica Section D Structural Biology
Acta Crystallographica Section D: Structural Biology welcomes the submission of articles covering any aspect of structural biology, with a particular emphasis on the structures of biological macromolecules and the methods used to determine them. Reports o
Automated refinement of macromolecular structures at low resolution using prior information
An automated pipeline for low-resolution structure refinement (LORESTR) has been developed to assist in the hassle-free refinement of difficult cases. The pipeline automates the selection of high-resolution homologues for external restraint generation and optimizes the parameters for ProSMART and REFMAC5, improving R factors and geometry statistics in 94% of the test cases.
Empirical power laws for the radii of gyration of protein oligomers
Power laws describing the dependence of the radius of gyration on the number of residues are calculated for protein oligomers. The power laws are useful for predicting the oligomeric state from small-angle X-ray scattering, identifying elongated proteins and validating the annotation of biological assemblies.
