Synchrotron SAXS data from solutions of the SRP9/14 heterodimer in 20 mM HEPES pH 7.5, 150 mM NaCl, 10 mM MgCl2, 10 mM KCl, 1mM DTT, pH 7.5 were collected on the BM29 beam line at the ESRF (Grenoble, France) using a Pilatus 1M detector at a wavelength of λ = 0.099 nm (I(s) vs s, where s = 4πsinθ/λ, and 2θ is the scattering angle). One solute concentration of 2.50 mg/ml was measured at 20°C. 10 successive 0.500 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.
