|Processing||Method: single particle (icosahedral) reconstruction / Applied symmetry: I (icosahedral) / Number of projections: 45150|
Details: Movie-mode data was drift-corrected and damage-compensated using the program DE_process_frames.py.
|3D reconstruction||Software: JSPR|
CTF correction: Per frame or incoherent sum of particle images, using CTFfind3
Resolution: 3.3 Å / Resolution method: FSC 0.143 CUT-OFF
Details: All the selected 45,150 particle images were first shrunk by a factor of four to a box size of 216x216 in order to accelerate the data processing at low resolutions. About 2,100 shrunken particle images with largest defocuses were selected from each subset to build the initial template, again using the program JSPR. Five sets of 300 particle images were randomly selected from the highly-defocused 2,100 particle images of each subset, then the global orientation search was performed using JSPR for 20 iterations. The maps from each set were visually examined, and one of the converged maps was selected from the last iterations of each subset. This map was then used as the initial template for the global orientation search for all four-times-shrunken particle images. Several global orientation searches were carried out for the four-times-shrunken data until the resolution converged, as judged by the Fourier Shell Correlation (FSC) curve of two independent data sets (the best 11,000 particles of each). The subsequent local orientation determination was performed using data up to a resolution slightly lower than the resolution assessed by the Gold Standard FSC = 0.143 criterion from the previous iteration, until resolution experienced no further improvement. The orientations and centers for the four-times-shrunken data were then migrated to the full-size (864x864) particle images for additional orientation determination. It should be noted the first frame was removed from all images and that orientation determination was done with all 23 remaining frames. We then experimented with different sets of subframes of the same particle data set and assessed the density connectivity and resolvability within these different maps. Once this was complete, we found empirically that using frames 1 through 6 (dose of ~10 e/A2), with both motion and damage corrections, yielded the best resolved density map, with a resolution of 3.3 Angstrom based on the Gold Standard estimate. The final reconstruction was produced from the best ~50% of the total particle images. The amplitude of all cryoEM density maps for visualization was scaled to the X-ray structure of bacteriophage HK97 mature capsid (PDB ID: 1OHG) and low-pass filtered to ~3.0 Angstrom resolution.
Euler angles: Jiang labs Single Particle Reconstruction (JSPR): 45,150 particle images were used towards 3 Angstrom resolution. During the last several iterations, defocus, astigmatism, and magnification parameters were refined together with the orientation and center position for each particle image.
