1 PhasingGoal is to calculate phases using isomorphous and anomalous differences from PCMBS and GdCl3 derivatives --MIRAS.How many phasing triangles will we have for each structure factor?For example. FPH = FP+FH for isomorphous differencesFor example. FPH* = FP+ FH* for anomalous differences-h-k-l hkl -h-k-l

7 Barriers to combining phase information from 2 derivatives Initial Phasing with PCMBSCalculate phases using coordinates you determined.Refine heavy atom coordinatesFind Gd site using Cross Difference Fourier map.Easier than Patterson methods.Want to combine PCMBS and Gd to make MIRAS phases.Determine handedness (P43212 or P41212 ?)Repeat calculation above, but in P41212.Compare map features with P43212 map to determine handedness.Combine PCMBS and Gd sites (use correct hand of space group) for improved phases.Density modification (solvent flattening & histogram matching)Improves PhasesView electron density map
8 Center of inversion ambiguity Remember, because the position of Hg was determined using a Patterson map there is an ambiguity in handedness.The Patterson map has an additional center of symmetry not present in the real crystal. Therefore, both the site x,y,z and -x,-y,-z are equally consistent with Patterson peaks.Handedness can be resolved by calculating both electron density maps and choosing the map which contains structural features of real proteins (L-amino acids, right handed a-helices).If anomalous data is included, then one map will appear significantly better than the other.Patterson map
9 Use a Cross difference Fourier to resolve the handedness ambiguity With newly calculated protein phases, fP, a protein electron density map could be calculated.The amplitudes would be |FP|, the phases would be fP. r(x)=1/V*S|FP|e-2pi(hx+ky+lz-fP)Answer: If we replace the coefficients with |FPH2-FP|, the result is an electron density map corresponding to this structural feature.
10 r(x)=1/V*S|FPH2-FP|e-2pi(hx-fP) What is the second heavy atom, Alex.When the difference FPH2-FP is taken, the protein component is removed and we are left with only the contribution from the second heavy atom.This cross difference Fourier will help us in two ways:It will resolve the handedness ambiguity by producing a very high peak when phases are calculated in the correct hand, but only noise when phases are calculated in the incorrect hand.It will allow us to find the position of the second heavy atom and combine this data set into our phasing. Thus improving our phases.
11 Phasing ProceduresCalculate phases for site x,y,z of PCMBS and run cross difference Fourier to find the Gd site. Note the height of the peak and Gd coordinates.Negate x,y,z of PCMBS and invert the space group from P43212 to P Calculate a second set of phases and run a second cross difference Fourier to find the Gd site. Compare the height of the peak with step 1.Chose the handedness which produces the highest peak for Gd. Use the corresponding hand of space group and PCMBS, and Gd coordinates to make a combined set of phases.
12 Lack of closure e=(FH+FP)-(FPH) FP-observed FPH-observed FH-calculated from atom positionFP-observedFPH-observede is the discrepancy between the heavy atom model and the actual data.Why is it not zero?
13 Phasing power |FH|/ e = phasing power. e=(FH+FP)-(FPH) The bigger the better.Phasing power >1.5 excellentPhasing power =1.0 goodPhasing power = 0.5 unusablee=(FH+FP)-(FPH)
14 /|FPH|-|FP|= Rcullis. Rcullis Kind of like an Rfactor for your heavy atom model. |FPH|-|FP| is like an observed FH, and e is the discrepancy between the heavy atom model and the actual data.Rcullis <1 is useful. <0.6 great!e=(FH+FP)-(FPH)

17 Density modification B) Histogram matching. Calculate an electron density map.Calculate the electron density distribution. It’s a histogram. How many grid points on map have an electron density falling between 0.2 and 0.3 etc?Compare this histogram with ideal protein electron density map.Modify electron density to resemble an ideal distribution.Number of times a particular electron density value is observed.Electron density value
