Experimental details

Sample preparation

SpecimenSpecimen state: particle / Method: negative staining
Sample solutionSpecimen conc.: 0.015 mg/ml
Buffer solution: 20 mM Tris, pH 7.5, 100 mM NH4Cl, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.5 mM EDTA, 6 mM 2-mercaptoethanol
pH: 7.5
Support filmC-flat grids (Protochips) with 2 micron diameter holes coated with a thin (2-5 nm) layer of continuous carbon support, plasma-cleaned for 5s
StainingNegative stain grids were prepared by applying the sample (3 uL) to the grid for 1 min, then blotting from the side to remove excess sample. The grid was washed immediately with 3 uL Buffer A, then blotted from the side. Concurrent with blotting, 3 uL of fresh 2% uranyl formate was applied to the grid, then blotted from the side. This step was repeated twice, then the grid was allowed to dry for at least 10 minutes.

Image acquisition

Image acquisitionNumber of digital images: 900
Details: 450 tilt pairs were collected at -50 and 0 degrees.

Image processing

ProcessingMethod: single particle reconstruction / Number of class averages: 1 / Applied symmetry: C1 (asymmetric) / Number of projections: 248
Details: Image tilt pairs were collected (-50 and 0 degrees) and particle tilt pairs were identified and extracted as two separate stacks. The untilted stack was aligned and classified iteratively, and RCT volumes were created for a single class average by applying alignment parameters to the corresponding tilt pairs.
3D reconstructionAlgorithm: Random-conical tilt reconstruction / Software: Spider, Appion / CTF correction: Each micrograph / Details: RCT reconstruction / Resolution: 62 Å / Resolution method: FSC 0.5, semi-independent

Jan 31, 2019. EMDB accession codes are about to change! (news from PDBe EMDB page)

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.

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.
