X-ray synchrotron radiation scattering data from solutions of the alpha domain of the autotransporter protein UpaB from uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) in 25 mM HEPES 150mM NaCl pH 7.5 were collected on the SAXS/WAXS beam line of the Australian Synchrotron (Melbourne, Australia) using a 2D Photon counting Pilatus 1M-W pixel detector (I(s) vs s, where s = 4π sin θ/λ and 2θ is the scattering angle; λ=0.1033 nm). Thirty five successive 1 second frames were collected across solute concentrations of 0.1-2.7 mg/ml. The SAXS data displayed this entry was derived from a 0.7 mg/ml sample. The data were normalized to the intensity of the transmitted beam and radially averaged and the scattering of the solvent-blank was subtracted. The models and corresponding fits include those derived from dummy-atom modelling using DAMMIN (top) and rigid-body modelling using CORAL (bottom).
