Hi, I have recently co-crystallized my protein with a heavy atom compound. The new crystals
have a different morphology. The crystals are rapidly dissolved by adding a bit of EDTA.
Can anyone suggest how one can confirm whether a heavy atom present in the crystal? Are there
any spectroscopic methods?
We would just like to be certain before doing any MAD experiments at a synchrotron.
This heavy atom compound contains mercury.
Thanks in advance!
