For PP2A:B55–FAM122A, multi-body refinement of the B55 and PP2Ac segments of the advanced was wanted to resolve particulars of each segments. Inside every ensuing physique alignment, sign subtraction and fixed-pose 3D classification of FAM122A and its surrounding binding groove was used to pick for particles for which multi-body refinement was profitable and FAM122A was current and well-resolved. This yielded 103,522 particles for which this was concurrently true in each our bodies. Utilizing these particles, a second multi-body refinement was used to generate maps for mannequin constructing inside every physique, with ultimate resolutions of two.55 Å for the B55 physique and a couple of.69 Å for the PP2Ac physique. To generate a consensus map, a refinement was run utilizing solely the highest 25,000 particles with the smallest sum of squared eigenvalues from the multi-body refinement (as reported by relion_flex_analyse).
