Despite damage, membrane protein structure can be seen using new X-ray technology, study reveals
Date:12/20/2010

ications for the future development of structural biology, because it removes a significant obstacle to the practical realisation of the molecular microscope using XFEL sources," he said.

It also provides important insights into the complex, turbulent and poorly-understood interactions that are driven by the interaction of an XFEL pulse with an atom, molecule or solid.

Their approach uses sophisticated molecular physics and careful data analysis to determine a new approach to measuring molecular structure.

Although still at the theoretical and computation level when put into practice this discovery will remove a major road-block in the path to solving the membrane protein problem.

This year, CXS signed an agreement with Japanese colleagues and will host the 4th Asia-Oceania Workshop on Science with X-ray Free Electron Lasers in 2011.

Professor Nugent said this was an extremely exciting time for X-ray science.

"My colleagues and I are convinced that our recent work is a critically important step forward," he said.

"We are very much looking forward to working with our Japanese colleagues in the coming years".

The first XFEL started operating at Stanford in California in 2009 and the second, the SPring8 facility in Japan, will start in 2011. A third is under construction in Europe to commence in 2014.
