Synchrotron SAXS data from solutions of Human telomere DNA d(TTAGGG)96 in 6 mM Na2HPO4, 2 mM NaH2PO4, 1 mM Na2EDTA, 185 mM KCl, pH 7.2 were collected on the BioCAT 18ID beam line at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory storage ring (Lemont, IL, USA) using a Pilatus3 X 1M detector at a sample-detector distance of 3.5 m and at a wavelength of λ = 0.1033 nm (I(s) vs s, where s = 4πsinθ/λ, and 2θ is the scattering angle). In-line size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) SAS was employed. The SEC parameters were as follows: A 440.00 μl sample at 6 mg/ml was injected at a 0.70 ml/min flow rate onto a GE Superdex 75 Increase 10/300 column at 20°C. Four 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.
