Synchrotron SAXS data from solutions of P. falciparum glycogen synthase kinase 3 in 20 mM Tris pH 8.0, 100 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM TCEP, pH 8 were collected on the EMBL P12 beam line at PETRA III (DESY, Hamburg, Germany) using a Pilatus 6M detector at a sample-detector distance of 3 m and at a wavelength of λ = 0.124 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 100.00 μl sample at 10 mg/ml was injected at a 0.40 ml/min flow rate onto a GE Superdex 200 Increase 5/150 column at 20°C. 900 successive 0.995 second frames were collected from the entire column elution where 28 frames were used to generate the final SAXS profile as measured from across the SEC-elution peak of the sample. The data were normalized to the intensity of the transmitted beam and radially averaged; the scattering of the solvent-blank was subtracted. The data were processed using CHROMIXS.
