Specimen state: particle
Specimen concentration (mg/mL): 0.20
Buffer: 15 mM HEPES pH 7.8, 150 mM NaCl, 1% glycerol and 1 mM DTT
Staining procedure: Quantifoil grids (R2/2 Cu 400 mesh) coated with thin carbon floated from mica were glow-discharged for 30 seconds at 50 mA and 0.2 mbar vacuum. 3 ul purified samples were applied for 1 min to the grids. Following two brief buffer washes, the grids were stained with 2% uranyl acetate, gently blotted using filter paper and air-dried.
