Optimization of engineered IgG requires knowledge of three-dimensional (3D) structure of synthetic IgG. However, due to flexible nature of the molecules, their structural characterization is challenging. Here, we use our reported individual-particle electron tomography (IPET) method with optimized negative-staining (OpNS) for direct 3D reconstruction of individual IgG hole-hole homodimer molecules. The hole-hole homodimer is an undesired variant generated during the production of a bispecific antibody using the knob-into-hole heterodimer technology. A total of 64 IPET 3D density maps at ~15 Å resolutions were reconstructed from 64 individual molecules, revealing 64 unique conformations. In addition to the known Y-shaped conformation, we also observed an unusual X-shaped conformation. The 3D structure of the X-shaped conformation contributes to our understanding of the structural details of the interaction between two heavy chains in the Fc domain. The IPET approach, as an orthogonal technique to characterize the 3D structure of therapeutic antibodies, provides insight into the 3D structural variety and dynamics of heterogeneous IgG molecules.|

EMDB accession codes are about to change! (news from PDBe EMDB page)
- The allocation of 4 digits for EMDB accession codes will soon come to an end. Whilst these codes will remain in use, new EMDB accession codes will include an additional digit and will expand incrementally as the available range of codes is exhausted. The current 4-digit format prefixed with “EMD-” (i.e. EMD-XXXX) will advance to a 5-digit format (i.e. EMD-XXXXX), and so on. It is currently estimated that the 4-digit codes will be depleted around Spring 2019, at which point the 5-digit format will come into force. (see PDBe EMDB page)
- The EM Navigator/Yorodumi systems omit the EMD- prefix.

Major update of PDB
- wwPDB released updated PDB data conforming to the new PDBx/mmCIF dictionary. This is a major update changing the version number from 4 to 5, and with Remediation, in which all the entries are updated. See below links for details.
- In this update, many items about electron microscopy experimental information are reorganized (e.g. em_software). Now, EM Navigator and Yorodumi are based on the updated data.
