The crystalline protein envelope of an insect virus has been examined by high-intensity X-ray pulses. The study by Henry Chapman of the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science id described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and represents the smallest protein crystals examined so far by X-ray crystallography.

Recent developments in polymer applications of SAXS and its related techniques such as USAXS, ASAXS, GISAXS and X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy have been reviewed along with new trends in nanoparticle analyses and industrial applications.

Cellular fusion: Protein X-ray insights

X-ray crystallography reveals that two closely related proteins, the HAP2 protein from the single-celled alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and the fusion protein from dengue virus are essential for fusion with a cell membrane and thus both sexual reproduction and viral invasion of a host cell. The proteins probably emerged very early in the history of life on Earth.
