*  MTB Europe - Varian acquires x-ray crystallography company Oxford Diffraction
8 April 2008. Varian, Inc. (NasdaqGS: VARI) has taken over Oxford Diffraction Ltd, a privately owned company based in Abingdon, UK, specialising in x-ray crystallography.. Varian has paid about US$37m and could pay a further US$10m depending on future performance. Oxford Diffraction's latest annual revenues were approximately US$15 million. Varian says the acquisition is part of its strategy to strengthen the company's portfolio of information-rich detection products, through internal research and development as well as the acquisition of complementary products and technologies.. X-ray crystallography is an analytical technique used to determine the structure of both small molecules and large molecules such as proteins. For crystalline compounds, x-ray crystallography is the most powerful technique available for structural analysis. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) provides complementary structural ...

*  Structural Biochemistry/X-ray Crystallography - Wikibooks, open books for an open world
X-ray crystallography is a technique used by biochemist to determine the three dimensional structure of an enzyme, protein, molecule, etc. Although the technique requires the molecule to be able to be crystallized it has helped scientist discover how drugs can prevent certain enzyme from reacting. By determining the three dimensional structure of the protein or enzyme scientists can determine how enzyme folds and binds. From that information, scientists can design certain drugs that only stop that enzyme. For example, scientists used x-ray crystallography to determine the structure of the COX enzyme that is responsible for arthritis. Now that the scientists know the three dimensional structure of the COX enzyme, they can create drugs that would be able to stop it, such as aspirin. Therefore X-ray crystallography is a powerful tool that biochemist and scientists can use to discover new drugs that can prevent ...

*  Radiation damage within nucleoprotein complexes studied by macromolecular X-ray crystallography - Oxford Neuroscience
© 2016 The Authors In X-ray crystallography, for the determination of the 3-D structure of macromolecules, radiation damage is still an inherent problem at modern third generation synchrotron sources, even when utilising cryo-crystallographic techniques (sample held at 100 K). At doses of just several MGy, at which a typical diffraction dataset is collected, site-specific radiation-induced chemical changes are known to manifest within protein crystals, and a wide body of literature is now devoted to understanding the mechanisms behind such damage. Far less is known regarding radiation-induced damage to crystalline nucleic acids and the wider class of nucleoprotein complexes during macromolecular X-ray crystallography (MX) data collection. As the MX structural biology community now strives to solve structures for increasingly larger and complex macromolecular assemblies, it essential to understand how such structures are affected by the ...

X-ray crystallography. A crystal is placed on the end of the pin, with a stream of cool air coming in from the right. An X-ray beam arrives from the silver pipe in the centre of the picture, and the camera (black) images the crystal. Crystallography is used to determine the three-dimensional molecular structure of a material. The diffraction pattern produced as X-rays pass through a crystal reveal its structure.

*  SMART: ProQ domain annotation
The conjugative transfer of F-like plasmids is repressed by FinO, an RNAbinding protein. FinO interacts with the F-plasmid encoded traJ mRNA andits antisense RNA, FinP, stabilizing FinP against endonucleolyticdegradation and facilitating sense-antisense RNA recognition. Here wepresent the 2.0 A resolution X-ray crystal structure of FinO, lacking itsflexible N-terminal extension. FinO adopts a novel, elongated, largelyhelical conformation. An N-terminal region, previously shown to contactRNA, forms a positively charged alpha-helix (helix 1) that protrudes 45 Afrom the central core of FinO. A C-terminal region of FinO that isimplicated in RNA interactions also extends out from the central body ofthe protein, adopting a helical conformation and packing against the baseof the N-terminal helix. A highly positively charged patch on the surfaceof the FinO core may present another RNA binding surface. The results ofan in vitro RNA duplexing assay demonstrate that the flexible N-terminalregion of ...

Coot is NOT a molecular graphics program (ie programs for making pretty pictures for publications). There are plenty of programs for that purpose eg. Pymol, SwissPDB Viewer, or Molscript/Raster3D.

*  Chimera-users] Ringer: A program to detect molecular motions by systematic X-ray electron-density sampling
The Alber lab at UC Berkeley is pleased to release of the code for Ringer version 1.0 (http://ucxray.berkeley.edu/ringer.htm), which depends on Chimera. Ringer is a program to detect molecular motions by systematic X-ray electron-density sampling. The aim of Ringer is to go beyond static structural snapshots of proteins by uncovering structural ensembles in X-ray electron density. This information can reveal not only which parts of proteins are flexible and which parts are rigid, but it also can define alternate conformations that may be important for function. Alternate conformations of binding sites also may afford additional targets for drug design. The Ringer method is described in Lang et al. /Protein Sci/. 2010 Jul; 19(7):1420-31 ,http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20499387,. An application of Ringer, determining the structural underpinnings of the side chain dynamics critical for the function of the enzyme proline isomerase, was published in Fraser JS ...

*  IUCr) Evolution of diffraction methods for solving crystal structures
as of 4 December 2012 were 86 661 released deposits, of which 88.0% are X-ray crystal structures (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/). These deposits include 8483 from 2012 alone, a number that already nearly matches the total accumulation through to 1998. Besides these structures of biological macromolecules, the stores of information unleashed by Bragg's development of crystal structure determination include hundreds of thousands of additional structures in the Cambridge Structural Database of organic and metallo-organic compounds (http://www.ccdc.cam.ac.uk/products/csd/), in the Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (http://www.fiz-karlsruhe.de/icsd_content.html), and in the CRYSTMET (http://www.tothcanada.com/) database of metals and alloys.. Each structure in the PDB is large, typically comprising several thousand atoms and, with time, ever increasingly intricate molecules and assemblages are being solved. With Fourier-based methods of analysis, the size of structure is limited essentially only by ...
