Synchrotron SAXS data from solutions of Unlabeled nuclear pore complex protein Nup153 (NUL) without denaturant in PBS, 10 mM DTT, pH 7.4 were collected on the EMBL P12 beam line at the PETRA III storage ring (Hamburg, Germany) using a Pilatus 2M detector at a sample-detector distance of 3 m and at a wavelength of λ = 0.1 nm (I(s) vs s, where s = 4πsinθ/λ, and 2θ is the scattering angle). Solute concentrations ranging between 2 and 5 mg/ml were measured at 23°C. 20 successive 0.050 second frames were collected. The data were normalized to the intensity of the transmitted beam and radially averaged; the scattering of the solvent-blank was subtracted. The low angle data collected at lower concentrations were extrapolated to infinite dilution and merged with the higher concentration data to yield the final composite scattering curve.

The protein contains a penultimate non-canonical amino acid p-acetylphenylalanine (207 Da) that is represented as U (selenocysteine, 168 Da) in the amino acid sequence for the entry. Therefore, the calculated MW from sequence (MW(expected)) must be adjusted accordingly (ca. 40 Da).
