Electron crystallography has become a powerful approach for structural characterization of two-dimensional (2-D) protein crystals. The crystallographic approach provides the simplest route to the type of averaging that is essential for obtaining high resolution structural information from radiation-sensitive samples such as organic molecules. Several atomic or near atomic resolution protein structures have been solved by using cryo-electron crystallography and most of them involved using both… CONTINUE READING
