Number of images: 212
Sampling interval (μm): 15.0
Details: Every image was recorded by 2Kx2K CCD camera (Gatan)


Specimen state: twoDArray
Specimen concentration (mg/mL): 1.00
Staining procedure: A 2.5 ul sample was transferred to a glow-discharged carbon coated copper grid. After 1 min, the drop was blotted with a slice of filter paper, and then the grid was washed with 2.5 ul water to avoid the precipitation caused by mixing phosphate buffer with uranyl acetate. Subsequently, the sample was stained with 2.5 ul of 2% uranyl acetate and air-dried.
Specimen support: a glow-discharged carbon coated copper grid
Crystal grow: Crystals grown by dialysis
