Processing details:Particles were aligned using multi-model IHRSR protocol in EMAN2/SPARX with naked 13 and 14 protofilament microtubules as references. The deposited map is a segmented region for difference map calculation. No amplitude scaling was applied. The phase-flipped particles were aligned using IHRSR in EMAN2/SPARX.
