    Details: The atomic model of a flagellin fragment F41 from Samatey et al (2001) NATURE 410 331-337 (PDB ENTRY 1IO1) was fitted to the density map using O. Then, initial model of full-length flagellin was built by tracing missing terminal chains. The model was refined using both positional and simulated annealing refinements, by a molecular dynamics refinement program, FEX-PLOR, which we developed based on FX-PLOR for EM image analysis of the helical assembly. The amplitude-weighted phase-residual was implemented as an effective potential energy. The layer-line amplitude distributions of the EM data were then scaled to the structure factors calculated from the model based on their radial amplitude profiles obtained by averaging the amplitudes within each resolution shell. The density map was calculated again, and model building and refinement were iterated.
