|Sample||Envelope Spike on the surface of SIVmac239 virus with truncated cytoplasmic tail|
|Source||Simian immunodeficiency virus / virus / サル免疫不全ウイルス|
|Map data||3D map of SIVmac239 envelope spike. It is the 3D averaged volume of all spikes including both "top/bottom view" and "side view" subsets (supplementary method of the reference). Author's threshold 2.65. It should be loaded together with the associated viral membrane map (SIVmac239_Vir_memb.map, EMD-1247, author's threshold 2.25 ).|

|Entire||Name: Envelope Spike on the surface of SIVmac239 virus with truncated cytoplasmic tail|
Details: The virus was AT-2 treated to eliminate the infectivity.
Number of components: 1 / Oligomeric State: Trimer
|Mass||Theoretical: 450 kDa|
-Component #1: protein, Envelope glycoprotein
|Protein||Name: Envelope glycoprotein / a.k.a: gp120, gp41 / Oligomeric Details: trimer|
Details: The spike consists of 3 copies of gp120 and gp41 ecto domain to form a trimer
Recombinant expression: No
|Mass||Experimental: 450 kDa|
|Source||Species: Simian immunodeficiency virus / virus / サル免疫不全ウイルス|
|Sample solution||Buffer solution: PBS|
|Support film||200 mesh Quantifoil R2/1 copper grid|
|Vitrification||Instrument: HOMEMADE PLUNGER / Cryogen name: ETHANE / Details: Vitrification instrument: Home made plunger|
-Electron microscopy imaging
|Imaging||Microscope: FEI/PHILIPS CM300FEG/ST / Date: Aug 30, 2004 / Details: Minimum tilt angle was -70|
|Electron gun||Electron source: FIELD EMISSION GUN / Accelerating voltage: 300 kV / Electron dose: 60 e/Å2 / Illumination mode: FLOOD BEAM|
|Lens||Magnification: 43200 X (calibrated) / Imaging mode: BRIGHT FIELD / Defocus: 4000 - 6000 nm|
|Specimen Holder||Holder: Gatan 626 cryoholder / Model: GATAN LIQUID NITROGEN / Tilt Angle: 70 - 70 deg.|
|Camera||Detector: TVIPS TEMCAM-F224 (2k x 2k)|
|Image acquisition||Number of digital images: 80|
|Processing||Method: subtomogram averaging|
Details: The tomographic tilt angle increment was determined by cosine rule, i.e., ~2-3 degrees increment around low tilt angles and <1 degree increment in the high tilt angles. Average number of tilts used in the 3D reconstructions: 80. Average tomographic tilt angle increment: 2.
|3D reconstruction||Algorithm: Weighted backprojection and 3d alignment and averaging|
Software: Protomo / Resolution: 32 Å / Resolution method: Estimated first node in the CTF
Details: The resolution of the final averaged map, determined by Fourier shell correlation (based on a cutoff value of 0.5) is 2.5 nm and, after low pass filtering to the estimated first node in the contrast transfer function, 3.2 nm.

Three pioneers of this field were awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017
- Jacques Dubochet (University of Lausanne, Switzerland) is a pioneer of ice-embedding method of EM specimen (as known as cryo-EM), Most of 3DEM structures in EMDB and PDB are obtained using his method.
- Joachim Frank (Columbia University, New York, USA) is a pioneer of single particle reconstruction, which is the most used reconstruction method for 3DEM structures in EMDB and EM entries in PDB. And also, he is a develper of Spider, which is one of the most famous software in this field, and is used for some EM Navigor data (e.g. map projection/slice images).
- Richard Henderson (MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK) was determined the first biomolecule structure by EM. The first EM entry in PDB, PDB-1brd is determinedby him.
