Synchrotron SAXS data from solutions of Human Guanylate-binding protein (hGBP1) in 50 mM TRIS, 5 mM MgCl2, 150 mM NaCl, pH 7.9 were collected using SEC-SAXS on the BM29 beam line at the ESRF (Grenoble, France) using a Pilatus 1M detector at a sample-detector distance of 2.9 m and at a wavelength of λ = 0.099 nm (l(s) vs s, where s = 4πsinθ/λ, and 2θ is the scattering angle). The SEC-column load concentration was 16.10 mg/ml (100 µl injection volume). 114 successive 1 second frames were collected through the elution peak, measured at 20°C. The data were normalized to the intensity of the transmitted beam and radially averaged; the scattering of an appropriate solvent-blank was subtracted.

Column type: Size exclusion chromatography (Superdex 200 10/300 GL, GE Healthcare) flow rate: 0.5 ml/min.
