Project: High resolution structural analysis of purified HTT samples

Experiment: Analysis of dephosphorylated HTT samples by cryoEM analysis 

Date completed:­ 2019/05/01

Rationale: We now have a good understanding of the global structure of HTT when in complex with HAP40 and our MALS and SAXS data suggest that apo HTT is likely self-associating and heterogenous in nature, despite high levels of purity. Dephosphorylating HTT from Sf9 cell production could alter its global structure sufficiently to allow high resolution structure determination by cryoEM.
