Experimental details

Sample preparation

Specimen stateparticle
Sample solutionBuffer solution: PBS (150 mM NaCl, 5.8 mM NaH2PO4/Na2HPO4) / pH: 7.4
Support film200 mesh carbon coated collodium-supported copper grids
Staining30 seconds absorption 60 seconds staining (1% phospho-tungstic acid, pH 7.4) vitrified in liquid ethane
VitrificationInstrument: HOMEMADE PLUNGER / Cryogen name: ETHANE
Method: A small vial of ethane is placed inside a larger liquid nitrogen reservoir. The grid holding a few microliters of the sample is held in place at the bottom of a plunger by the means of fine tweezers. Once the ethane in the vial is completely frozen, it needs to be slightly melted. When the liquid ethane is ready, a piece of filter paper is then pressed against the sample to blot of excess buffer, sufficient to leave a thin layer on the grid. After a redetermined time, the filter paper is removed, and the plunger is allowed to drop into the liquid ethane. Once the grid enters the liquid ethane, the sample is rapidly frozen,and the grid is transferred under liquid nitrogen to a storage box immersed liquid nitrogen for later use in the microscope.
Details: Vitrification instrument: self-construction

About Yorodumi


Oct 4, 2017. Three pioneers of this field were awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017

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.

Jul 12, 2017. Major update of PDB

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.
