Synchrotron SAXS data from solutions Vibrio collagenase VhaC in 10 mM Tris-HCl, 100 mM NaCl, pH 8 were collected on the BL19U2 beam line at the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF; Shanghai, China) using a Pilatus 1M detector at a wavelength of λ = 0.0923 nm (I(s) vs s, where s = 4πsinθ/λ, and 2θ is the scattering angle). One solute concentration of 1.00 mg/ml was measured at 10°C. 20 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.
