Serial femtosecond crystallography using ultrashort pulses from x-ray free electron lasers (XFELs) enables studies of the light-triggered dynamics of biomolecules. We used microcrystals of photoactive yellow protein (a bacterial blue light photoreceptor) as a model system and obtained high-resolution, time-resolved difference electron density maps of(More)
The HET-s protein from the filamentous fungus Podospora anserina is a prion involved in a cell death reaction termed heterokaryon incompatibility. This reaction is observed at the point of contact between two genetically distinct strains when one harbors a HET-s prion (in the form of amyloid aggregates) and the other expresses a soluble HET-S protein (96%(More)
The application of newly developed imaging techniques using X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) sources requires equally new methods for analysing the large volumes of data collected. Methods are described for processing and assessing the quality of the measured XFEL diffraction patterns. The methods are applied to an XFEL data-set to extract diffraction(More)
