Abstract: A major hurdle in membrane protein crystallography is generating crystals diffracting sufficiently for structure determination. This is often attributed not only to the difficulty of obtaining functionally active protein in mg amounts but also to the intrinsic flexibility of its multiple conformations. The cocrystallization of membrane proteins with antibody fragments has been reported as an effective approach to improve the diffraction quality of membrane protein crystals by limiting the intrinsic flexibility…
