-Entire Isometrically contracting asynchronous insect flight muscle
|Entire||Name: Isometrically contracting asynchronous insect flight muscle|
Details: This specimen is obtained from a quick frozen, isometrically contracting asynchronous insect flight muscle that has been freeze substituted, plastic embedded, and thin sectioned
Number of components: 8 / Oligomeric State: tissue
-Component #1: cellular-component, myofibril
|Cellular-component||Name: myofibril / a.k.a: muscle / Oligomeric Details: muscle fibril|
Details: The sample was enblock stained using uranyl acetate and tannic acid, and post stained with lead citrate and potassium permanganate
Recombinant expression: No
|Source||Species: Lethocerus indicus / arthropod / Water bug|
|Source (natural)||Organelle: myofibril / Location in cell: myooplasm|
Organ or tissue: asynchronous dorsal longitudinal flight muscle
|Sample solution||Buffer solution: 20 mM MOPS buffer, 5 mM NaN3, and MgCl2, ATP, CaCl2, and EGTA in varying millimolar concentrations|
|Staining||Freeze slammed fibers were freeze-substituted in acetone using a tannic aciduranyl acetate sequence, and ultimately embedded in Araldite-506 for thin-section electron microscopy. Ultrathin (25-30 nm) longitudinal sections were stained by permanganate-lead.|
|Vitrification||Instrument: HOMEMADE PLUNGER / Cryogen name: HELIUM / Temperature: 4.5 K|
Method: smash against a liquid helium cooled Au-coated Cu mirror
Details: Vitrification instrument: modified Heuser Cryopress freezing head
-Electron microscopy imaging
|Imaging||Microscope: FEI/PHILIPS CM300FEG/T|
|Electron gun||Electron source: FIELD EMISSION GUN / Accelerating voltage: 300 kV / Illumination mode: FLOOD BEAM|
|Lens||Cs: 2 mm / Imaging mode: BRIGHT FIELD|
|Specimen Holder||Holder: Gatan model 670 Ultrahigh tilt analytical holder / Model: OTHER / Tilt Angle: -72 - 72 deg.|
|Camera||Detector: TVIPS TEMCAM-F224 (2k x 2k)|
|Image acquisition||Bit depth: 16|
Details: Images recorded on a TVIPS Tem-Cam F224 2k x 2k CCD camera
|Processing||Method: electron tomography / Number of sections: 70|
|3D reconstruction||Algorithm: marker free alignment / Software: PROTOMO, IMOD|
Details: Two tilt series at 90 degrees to one another were first independently aligned using marker-free alignment and area matching. The two resulting tomograms were then merged by patch correlation and volume warp using IMOD. Tomogram computed using weighted back projection.
Resolution method: FSC 0.5

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.

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.
