Kv4.2 Potassium Voltage-Gated Ion Channel

Kv4.2 Potassium Voltage-Gated Ion Channel

Below is a stack (257 MB) of 8,314 images (MRC/CCP4 format ) of Kv4.2 potassium voltage-gated ion channel [1]. The images were recorded with a Philips CM12 electron microscope at an acceleration voltage of 120 keV, at 1.5 µm underfocus and a magnification of 60,000x. Micrographs were scanned with a step size of 28 µm, giving a pixel size of 4.67 Å on the specimen. Alignment parameters determined by Frealign for each particle in the stack can also be found below, as well as a reconstruction of Kv4.2 (also MRC/CCP4 format; a B-factor of -5000.0 Å2 and 28.0 Å low-pass filter radius were applied using the program bfactor to sharpen the density) and a script to calculate a reconstruction using Frealign.

Please note that the handedness of the reconstruction calculated using the attached parameter files will be WRONG. The reconstruction must be mirrored (for example, with the MRC program label) to have the correct handedness. The reconstruction attached below has already been corrected.
