Diffuse scattering resulting from macromolecular frustration
Distinctive diffuse scattering in the form of diffuse rings around Bragg positions has been observed in the diffraction patterns of a crystal of the N-terminal fragment of the Gag protein from Feline Foamy Virus. It is shown that these are caused by geometric frustration as molecules try to pack on the triangular b-c mesh of the space group P6122. In order to explain the strong diffuse scattering it is necessary for the crystal to contain occupational disorder such that each unit cell contains...[Show more]
