A program suite for one-dimensional small-angle scattering data processing running on(More)
New methods to automatically build models of macromolecular complexes from high-resolution structures or homology models of their subunits or domains against x-ray or neutron small-angle scattering data are presented. Depending on the complexity of the object, different approaches are employed for the global search of the optimum configuration of subunits(More)
DAMMIF, a revised implementation of the ab-initio shape-determination program DAMMIN for small-angle scattering data, is presented. The program was fully rewritten, and its algorithm was optimized for speed of execution and modified to avoid limitations due to the finite search volume. Symmetry and anisometry constraints can be imposed on the particle(More)
Structural analysis of flexible macromolecular systems such as intrinsically disordered or multidomain proteins with flexible linkers is a difficult task as high-resolution techniques are barely applicable. A new approach, ensemble optimization method (EOM), is proposed to quantitatively characterize flexible proteins in solution using small-angle X-ray(More)
New developments in the program package ATSAS (version 2.4) for the processing and analysis of isotropic small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering data are described. They include (i) multiplatform data manipulation and display tools, (ii) programs for automated data processing and calculation of overall parameters, (iii) improved usage of highand(More)
Scattering patterns from geometrical bodies with different shapes and anisometry (solid and hollow spheres, cylinders, prisms) are computed and the shapes are reconstructed ab initio using envelope function and bead modelling methods. A procedure is described to analyze multiple solutions provided by bead modeling methods and to estimate stability and(More)
A program package ATSAS 2.1 for small angle X-ray and neutron scattering data analysis is presented. The programs included in the package cover major processing and interpretation steps from primary data reduction to three-dimensional modeling methods. This system is primarily oriented towards the analysis of biological macromolecules, but could also be(More)
Over 73,000 projections of the E. coli ribosome bound with formyl-methionyl initiator tRNAf(Met) were used to obtain an 11.5 A cryo-electron microscopy map of the complex. This map allows identification of RNA helices, peripheral proteins, and intersubunit bridges. Comparison of double-stranded RNA regions and positions of proteins identified in both(More)
A self-contained presentation of the main concepts and methods for interpretation of X-ray and neutron-scattering patterns of biological macromolecules in solution, including a reminder of the basics of X-ray and neutron scattering and a brief overview of relevant aspects of modern instrumentation, is given. For monodisperse solutions the experimental data(More)
Small-angle scattering (SAS) is frequently employed for screening large numbers of samples and for studying these samples under different conditions, including spaceand time-resolved analysis. These measurements produce immense amounts of data, especially on modern high-flux and high-brilliance sources (e.g. third-generation synchrotrons). In biological(More)
