Protocol:Cross-common lines
CTF correction:Phase flipping of each particle
Number of particles:2565
Number of class averages:40
Imposed symmetry:T
Resolution by author:20 Å
Resolution method:FSC 0.5
Processing details:Final maps were calculated from 40 class averages. After correction of contrast transfer function by phase flipping the reconstructions have been performed by iterative cycles of MRA, MSA, classification and angular reconstitution of the obtained class averages.
