Neutralization of the anthrax toxin by antibody-mediated stapling of its membrane-penetrating loop, By The Frank Lab
The IKI Electron Microscopy Unit provides expertise and resources for solving macro-molecular structures. Structure determination is enabled by a high-end transmission electron microscope (TEM) (FEI Tecnai F30 Polara), direct detection camera (Gatan K2 summit with Quantum GIF energy filter), and the computational support necessary for single-particle analysis. Higher-order structure determination is enabled by tomographic reconstructions using the same setup. Grids sample preparation expertise and equipment (Leica EM GP) are also available.
Our equipment is available for use by BGU faculty as well as other university faculty and industry upon application.
