Protocol:Common lines
Software:Sparx, EMAN2, FREALIGN
CTF correction:Per micrograph for phase flipping, per particles for refinement in FREALIGN
Number of particles:8715
Imposed symmetry:C1
Resolution by author:32 Å
Resolution method:FSC 0.143
Processing details:Particles were prepared within the APPION processing environment. The particles were automatically selected using Signature and extracted from phase flipped micrographs using values calculated by CTFFIND3. After projection matching within EMAN2/Sparx, the final map was further refined in FREALIGN.
